Sinking of the 'Scharnhorst' at the Battle of the Falkland Islands, 8 December 1914
On the left of the picture is 'Scharnhorst', in port-bow view, listing to port and sinking by the stern, her bow out of the water. She is on fire aft and about to capsize, smoke pouring from the fires and her funnels over the starboard side. In the extreme right background, the smoke and gun flashes of the 'Invincible' commanded by Vice-Admiral Sir Doveton Sturdee and 'Inflexible', commanded by Captain Redare Beamish.
