The ship has been in Belfast harbour for the last 90 years, where it was also used as a command post in WW2.  Some aspects of the ship have remained unchanged for a century including original compasses and telegraphs and the cabin quarters.  The restoration should be complete in time for the centenary of Jutland on 31st May 2016.
