At the time " Warrior " was close to " Warspite " the enemy vessels were no longer visible, but only the flashes of their guns, while " Warspite " and " Warrior " were receiving very heavy fire. There were 100 casualties, 19 of these were in the engine room, and most of the remainder on the main deck.
