The following is based on German Naval Reports and observations. About 23.45 hrs Black Prince fired on the German Battleship Rhineland . 2 of her 6 inch shells hit the German vessel . This action in the dark was a brief affair but those on Rhineland must have caught a glimpse of their attacker . Towards midnight Black Prince, seemingly lost, made towards a line of ships , her Captain perhaps thinking they were British. They were in fact German Battleships, who promptly lit up the British ship with their searchlights and launched a tornado of shells at her. 12 heavy shells and several smaller ones struck her at almost point blank range. She caught fire along her full length, blew up and took all of her ships company with her. RN record ---- 857 killed including about 50 Boys.
