Pocket battleship Admiral Graf Spee at another Coronation review at Spithead, this time in 1937 (see similar 1911 Von der Tann photo nearby).  Scuttled after the Battle of the River Plate in December 1939, she was the first significant German naval loss of WW2.

Admiral Graf Spee participated in five international operations patrolling in Spanish waters from 1936 to 1938 because of the Spanish Civil War. On these photos the crew rest on the forecastle and around the forward 28 cm SK L/52 C28 main turret.

13.5 in battleship HMS Iron Duke, Jellicoe's flagship at Jutland in 1916, seen at Scapa Flow in 1939 when she was in use as a depot / AA ship: her 'B' and 'Y' turrets have been removed. Two 'R' class battleships are in the background: famously, HMS Royal Oak (probably one of those shown) was sunk in the anchorage by U 47 in October that year.
