Sunk at Jutland
The Sparrowhawk sank after a collission with HMS Broke which collided around the bridge and another one from HMS Contest which took 2 metres off her stern.
After the Tipperary sank, Sparrowhark took on some survivors from her lifeboats. She was towed part way by HMS Marksman which eventually dropped the cable and fired 18 rounds to finish her off.
Ready for action after dock repairs
