Battle of Imbros

 

On 20th January 1918 two Turkish warships, Yavūz Sultān Selīm and Midilli (formerly the S.M.S. Goeben and S.M.S. Breslau) attacked a small force of four Royal Navy ships off the Island of Imbros, Turkey.
 
The two smaller vessels were the Monitor-class, H.M.S. Raglan and and H.M.S. M28 and both were sunk in the ensuing engagement.
 
The two destroyers, H.M.S. Tigress and H.M.S. Lizard, survived the attack and pursued the retreating Turkish warships which accidentally ran into a minefield, sinking the Midilli and damaging the Yavūz Sultān Selīm.
 
130 men were lost aboard H.M.S. Raglan and 12 aboard H.M.S. M28. The full casualty list can be seen at naval-history.net
