Seeing this has prompted me to ask if any lives were lost when the Russian Fleet opened fire on the Dogger Bank fishermen?
This was during the Russo-Japanese War of 1904, and they were acting in "self defence" believing that the fishing fleet were Japanese torpedo boats
The Russian navy was en-route to Vladivostok, and met their complete destruction at Tsushima.
