View of HMS Broke in dry dock on Tyneside, showing bow damage sustained at the Battle of Jutland, June 1916 (TWAM ref. DS.SWH/5/3/4/2/B600).

HMS Broke was a Faulknor-class destroyer built by J. Samuel White, East Cowes, Isle of Wight. She was damaged during a collision with HMS Sparrowhawk on 1 June 1916.

The Rivers Tyne and Wear were responsible for building many vessels, which served Britain during the First World War. This set remembers some of those warships that took part in the Battle of Jutland from 31 May to 1 June 1916. During the battle over 6,000 British sailors lost their lives and 14 Royal Naval vessels were sunk. The losses included the battlecruisers HMS Queen Mary and HMS Invincible, as well as the destroyers HMS Shark, HMS Sparrowhawk and HMS Turbulent, all built on Tyneside. Their memory lives on.

    Some time with a buffer should put that ship right in short order.

    Really, what can one think or say after such a devastating loss except RIP. For the Empire.
