Yesterday was Jutland Day! On that day in 1916, three British battle cruisers and one German battle cruiser were destroyed in one of the greatest(and most indecisive) sea battles of all time.They were:HMS Queen Mary,HMS Invincible(not so invincible as its namers would like to think!),HMS Indefatigable, and SMS Lutzow(the Lutzow was German).Christopher fact time! The Santissima Trinidad,a Spanish Ship of the line,had four gun decks and 144 cannon! Not surprisingly, She was the largest ship of her day.That is all,Christopher.
