Masters of the seas

A painting showing the ships of the First Battle-Cruiser Squadron in 1915, in line of battle against the setting sun. The leading vessel could be one of the battleships 'Ajax', 'Audacious', or 'Centurion, since they were the only ones with tripod foremasts and no hull embrasures. They are shown with anti-torpedo nets that were removed in 1915-1916. The vessels astern are battle cruisers, probably of the 'Indefatigable' class. Battle-cruisers were complementary to the dreadnought battleship. Carrying similar-sized guns they achieved greater speeds, and could take swift evasive action by compromising on the thickness of their armour.
