HMS Iron Duke, 1914

Model by Manuel Ortega

Iron Duke served as flagship for the Grand Fleet during World War I.  Her 10 13.5-inch guns were all mounted on the centerline, allowing her good fields of fire to the broadside.  She fought at Jutland, delivering accurate fire as might be expected of a ship with Admiral Jellicoe and Captain Frederic Dreyer on board.
