HMS Lion

HMS Lion was a battlecruiser that served as Admiral Beatty's flagship at the battles of Heligoland Bight, Dogger Bank and Jutland. At Dogger Bank she suffered very heavy damage while at Jutland she was hit in a turret and a devastating explosion was only narrowly averted. Despite that she survived the war.
