The Battle of Jutland

IKN makes space for a message from my mother about my grandfather:

I would like to say how proud I am of my dad who served in the Battle of Jutland 100 years ago today, and he was one of the lucky ones that came home again to continue serving his country, also to spare a thought to the thousands of men that lost their lives in this horrendous battle. To my dad always loved never forgotten.

His grandson agrees with everything written. If you care enough, Wikipedia has a very good and complete page on the events of May 31st and June 1st 1916.
