Photo Caption:

Shown here is the 26,500-ton German Battle Cruiser “Derfflinger” from a photo taken just minutes before it sank after being scuttled on June 21, 1919. As well as being one of the two German battle cruisers that participated in the bombardment of Scarborough, she also took part in the Battle of Jutland in 1916 when she and others sank the HMS Queen Mary and HMS Invincible. The ship was 600 feet long with a 95-foot beam. Twenty years later, she was finally scrapped in 1946.
