OK, a great concept and a great image... but. These are US battleships. The cage masts; not seen in the North Sea until after the battle.

Interesting battle - Germany sank more British ships, but was forced back to Kiel and Wilhelmshaven, and never were able to really venture out again. Total loss of life was like 9,000 men combined.

Two spectral fleets steaming between time and eternity. Flying Dutchman still seeking the conclusive battle that neither achieved.

Thank you for your Remembrance. It means a lot to know that there are still some who recall the great clash at Jutland.

This is a truely amazing piece of work, the spectral ships sailing forth from a bygone age. I salute you!

But, I'm afraid that the ships here did not fight at Jutland. That battle line is definately American ships..the cage masts are very distinctive. I can't tell specific classes, but they all could be ships of the 6th Battle Squadron, which served with the British Grand Fleet near the end of the war--and therefore Ghosts of Jutland, though not of the actual battle.

Ship ID aside, a truely amazing pic that calls forth years gone by! Thanks for posting this!

I was named after the commander in that battle.. Admiral Sir David George Beatty (grandad from Scotland..dropped a T to save ink in the long haul he always said)
