This panel likely to show the Battle of Dogger Bank (January 24 1915), which was considered a clear-cut British victory, with light British and heavy German casualties. Whilst it might equally show a smaller engagemen  the battleships steaming line astern and their destroyer escort suggests something large and formal.
