There is evidence that other dreadnoughts were painted in these experimental schemes, but a lack of photographic evidence makes it impossible to identify which ships played their part in Professor Kerr’s experiments. For the most part these schemes were abandoned in the summer of 1915, and the battle fleet was allowed to resume a more uniform appearance. The exceptions were the dreadnoughts sent to the Mediterranean in 1915 to support the Gallipoli operation. Several ships were given a false bow wave to give a misleading impression of the ship’s speed to any lurking U-Boat, but these were painted out a few weeks later when the ships returned to Scapa Flow.
As his squadron consisted of just four ‘fast battleships’, it was not subdivided into divisions. While the composition of squadrons and divisions remained fairly static throughout the war, there were occasional changes, particularly when capital ships were sent away for refitting or repair. At Jutland, the main battle fleet of 24 dreadnoughts was organized as follows: 2nd Battle Squadron 4th Battle Squadron 1st Battle Squadron 1st Division 2nd Division 3rd Division 4th Division 5th Division 6th Division King George V (squadron flag) Orion (flag) Iron Duke (fleet flag) Benbow (flag) Colossus (squadron flag) Marlborough (flag) Ajax Monarch Royal Oak Bellerophon Collingwood Revenge Centurion Conqueror Superb (squadron flag) Temeraire Neptune Hercules Erin Thunderer Canada Vanguard St Vincent Agincourt Thus, Iron Duke was essentially placed under the command of Vice Admiral Sturdee’s 4th Battle Squadron even though she also acted as the fleet flagship.
Days later she was damaged in a collision with a pre-dreadnought, necessitating minor repairs. In August 1914 she joined the 2nd Battle Squadron of the Grand Fleet, and remained with the squadron until the end of the war. Monarch, Thunderer and Conqueror also joined the 2nd Battle Squadron following the outbreak of war. On 8 August Monarch was attacked by U-15 off Fair Isle, but the torpedoes missed. This was the first torpedo attack of the war against a British warship. On 27 December, Monarch and Conqueror collided in Scapa Flow and the two warships were sent to Devonport for repairs, rejoining the fleet in late January and March respectively.
