Nice snippet, Tom. I think Gunner X's recollection of Lion's performance at the Dogger Bank is a little on the rosy side, though. She fired some 250 shells and scored about 5 hits. She herself was hit by 16 shells fired by the three German battlecruisers Seydlitz, Derfflinger and Moltke. Considering the hammering she took, her casualties were very light – no fatalities and about a dozen wounded.
