Both Neptune and the two Colossus-class ships kept their boats clear of the guns by carrying them on a flying bridge mounted above the wing turrets. This shows Neptune as she appeared in 1914, before her forward flying bridge was removed, and Hercules as she looked at Jutland. com The armoured protection of the Colossus-class dreadnoughts represented an improvement over the Neptune, but to save weight protection was still concentrated on the waterline belt, the conning tower and the turret barbettes.

Additional lifesaving equipment was also provided after Jutland in the shape of Carley rafts. Searchlights were concentrated onto specially built platforms beneath the funnels. Gunnery modifications included the provision of range clocks in the masts, and deflection scales painted on the after turret to provide target information to the ships astern if the dreadnought formed part of a line astern formation.
