03 December 2014
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.
