I thought of Scapa as well, but I thought you wanted battles..Paul is perfectly correct...
DERFLINGER met LION on three occasions. The first two were in 1915 and 1916. Built with pole masts, it was only after Jutland that the tripod mast was installed in place of the forward pole mast. On November 21, 1918, the ships met again. This time it was when the RN escorted the High Seas Fleet into internment at Scapa Flow. Navis also makes a model of DERFLINGER as built with the pole masts.
HMS Lion and SMS Derflinger, first at Dogger Bank in 1915 then at Jutland in 1916. Both are Navis models.
Identify these ships (and models) and the occasion(s) on which they met:
