BELFAST, NORTHERN IRELAND - JANUARY 29: Floodlights illuminate the turbines below desk on HMS Caroline on January 29, 2013 in Belfast, Northern Ireland. A National Heritage Memorial Fund grant of 1.097 m GBP will go towards urgent preventative work to secure the Caroline. An application for more funding is being made in order to proceed with full restoration of the 446 ft ship. Built by Cammell Laird at Birkenhead in 1914 she was part of the 4th Light Cruiser Squadron which saw action in the Battle of Jutland in 1916 and is the last surviving Royal Navy ship from that period still afloat. At the time of her decommissioning in 2011, she was the second oldest ship still in Royal Navy service, HMS Victory Nelson's flagship preserved at Portsmouth, being the oldest. Caroline was converted into a depot and training ship for The Royal Navy Reserve in Alexandra Dock in Belfast in later years. (Photo by Peter Macdiarmid/Getty Images)
