HMS Viking on fire

HMS Viking on fire
Here we see the Tribal class destroyer HMS Viking on fire after she hit a mine on 29 January 1916. The original caption is in error - I can find no mention of the Viking or any other British destroyer being torpedoed on that date. The ship is clearly the Viking, as she was the old six funneled destroyer to serve with the Royal Navy.
