Description of Jutland to Junkyard

Under the terms of the treaty ending World War I, the German High Seas Fleet was compelled to sail to the Scottish anchorage at Scapa Flow. Before the British could take control of the ships, the German officers scuttled the fleet, sending 16 capital ships and numerous smaller craft to the bottom. From 1924 the German ships were raised and their high-quality metal fittings converted to scrap, in the greatest salvage operation of all time.
