HMS Fearless in dry dock at Rosyth after a night exercise went horribly wrong and a number of collisions occurred. Fearless collided and sank the Sub K17.
bpdq8gd3u0371.jpg

On 31 January 1918 an incident that sardonically came to be known as the Battle of May Island occurred. A number of Royal Navy warships, including Fearless and her flotilla, were en route to Rosyth to take part in exercises, when due to a combination of mechanical failures and confusion over ship positions in the misty evening, a number of ships collided. Fearless accidentally rammed and sank the submarine HMS K17. She ground to halt, causing the other submarines in the flotilla to turn to avoid her, at which point a number of them were themselves struck by other following ships. In just over an hour, two submarines had been sunk, four others were damaged and Fearless had also sustained considerable damage. Over 100 sailors were killed in the incident.

Fearless was repaired and survived the war, but was considered obsolete and was sold for scrapping on 8 November 1921, eventually being broken up in Germany.
