Officers and Men Killed in Action or Died of Wounds, H.M.S. Tipperary, Battle of Jutland,  31st May -1st June 1916.


 Extract from the Official History; " Naval Operations" by Sir Julian S. Corbett. 1923.

.................Captain Wintour and the leading boats of his solitary flotilla were aware of a shadowy line of ships to starboard on a converging course. Whether they were friend or foe it was impossible to tell, and he held on for some minutes with all torpedo tubes trained to starboard. Still they made no sign, and at last, as they were evidently drawing ahead of him and had closed to less than 1,000 yards, he ventured to give the challenge. Salvoes, accurate and rapid, at point blank followed instantaneously, and in a minute the Tipperary burst into flames, almost lost to sight in brilliantly illuminated splashes. Yet she fired both her torpedoes. The four boats of her division did the same, and so did the Broke. Some of the rear boats, still uncertain that a mistake was not being made, held their fire till accidentally one of the enemy's beams lit up the rear ship. Then it was plain to see what they had to deal with, and they also attacked. Several of the boats claim to have hit. Explosions were plainly seen; there were gaps in the line of staring searchlights. How many hits were made is uncertain, but one at least of the cruisers received her death blow......All that man could do Captain Wintour had done, but he was now no more. The first salvo had swept away the Tipperary's bridge, on which he stood, and she was left a mass of burning wreckage..........
