80th Anniversary of the Swordfish Attacks on Bismarck
The story of the torpedoing of the Bismarck by Swordfish Squadrons from HMS Victorious and HMS Ark Royal in May 1941 is one of great courage, skill and determination.
It was the action in which the Fleet Air Arm first demonstrated its full value as a striking force at sea and it changed the outcome of the war in the Atlantic.
