On March 10, 1920, Jutland left Halifax, Nova Scotia, with a crew of 21 heading to the Western Bank fishing grounds.[5] On the morning of March 11, the Halifax steam trawler Lemberg discovered two dories approximately 160 kilometers (86 nautical miles) southeast of Halifax.[5][6] Both dories were damaged and full of water.[5] The body of John R. Ellison, a mate of Jutland, was discovered aboard one of the dories.[5][6] The bodies of the 20 other crew members were never found.[5] Various theories on what happened to Jutland have been examined, from an explosion to a collision.[5]
