The Last Shot by Matania

A group of British seamen gunners straining to fire a final shot at a German ship as their own ship sinks beneath them. The caption notes that this was a common occurrence with light cruisers and destroyers where their light build rendered them liable to destruction by a single shell of moderate dimensions. Eight destroyers were lost at the Battle of Jutland for instance. Date: 1919
