UB-110 was a Type III U-boat. It was sank on July 19th 1918, was probably the last u-boat sank during world war one. Twenty three of her thirty one crew died during her destruction. On October 4th 1918 she was raised from her watery grave and sold for scrap metal. 

These pictures were taken just prior to her being broken up for scrap. They show the cramped conditions on board that the crew had endured. 

The Imperial German Navy (Kaiserliche Marine) battlecruiser SMS Moltke during a visit to Hampton Roads, Virginia in 1912. She participated in most major fleet actions conducted by the German Navy during the First World War, taking damage several times.

During the Battle of Jutland, on the last night of May 1916 Moltke came under fire from Britain’s new fast battleships, coming to the rescue of their own battlecruisers. The four Queen Elizabeth-class super dreadnoughts she faced were carrying new and very powerful 15″ guns. Within 10 minutes she had been hit. The shell pierced a coal bunker, tore into a casemate deck and ignited ammunition stored there. The explosion burned the ammunition hoist down to the magazine, but there it stopped. Another 15″ shell struck the No. 5 starboard 5.9″ secondary. The ship returned home with 16 dead and 20 wounded. She herself had hit the British battlecruiser HMS Tiger 13 times, which suffered 24 men killed and 46 wounded from 18 hits.


The Battle of Jutland took place between the British Grand Fleet and the German High Seas Fleet on the 31st May 1916 in the North Sea, off the mainland of Denmark.

Although it was the only major naval battle of World War I, it became the largest sea battle in naval warfare history in terms of the numbers of battleships and battlecruisers engaged, bringing together the two most powerful naval forces in existence at that time.

So who won?

The British lost more men and big ships.
Historians seem to think the battle made no difference to the course of the war and therefore was a British victory.
Both sides claimed it as a victory.
