Default Imperial Tallies of ships participating in the Battle of Jutland 1916

Greetings,
I have been collecting the Kriegsmarine Mützenbänder for just over a decade now. I have accomplished several complete collections and have turned my attention to attempting to collect the German Ships that participated in the Battle of Jutland.
Here is what I have achieved so far..






Thanks for looking.

JustinG

Were there other non-combat attending ships?

There were several more along with torpedo boats, uboats. Here is a very good list of the combatants of the battle of Jutland.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Order_...tle_at_Jutland

I am hoping to acquire all of the ships with S.M.S. in front of their name.

A bit of preliminary history from what I know.
S.M.S means Seiner Majestät Schiff translated to His Majesty's ship.

There were three colors: Gold was for Matrosendivision. Silver for Werftdivision and Red for Cadet or youth sailor.

Certain ships like the S.M.S Derfflinger don't turn up too often and are a bit more expensive. This ship also had quite a successful during the battle.
As you can see in the link, I have a good start, but have a long way to go.

The other interesting thing about this is that you can look and see many of the commanders who were lost during the battle later became namesakes for the Destroyers built in the 1930s that fought during WW2. Enlisted men who performed exceptionally well in the face of danger were also remembered and commemorated with a Zerstörer namesake.


Best Regards,
JustinG

Nice tallies Justin! This will be a noble and difficult achievement if you can pull it off. Here are some of my Imperial tally displays.

Hi Jeff, Thanks for looking at my collection and as always, it is nice to see your collection.
Some fine examples. I know that several will be very hard to come by.
Luetzow, Derfflinger and several others.
Partly got the idea from seeing your collection so many years ago on this forum.
A worthy effort. I have time on my side still. (Knock on wood)

Thanks for sharing your collection.

I hope to frame and have designed some custom photos like the one I did for the S.M.S Kaiserin.
Best Regards,

The Tallies posted earlier arrived after three months of being in the postal systems.
Glad they turned up. They don't often come up for sale.

Best Regards,

Thank you for your response and suggestion. I was hoping to post when I was successful in achieving all the ships. Kind of a celebratory moment.
Perhaps I should not wait though.

Best Regards,
JustinG
