“Oh, what a comical web has been woven at spotlight times of World War III On May 24, 1941, the first of two torpedo-bomber attacks on the German battleship Bismarck in the North Atlantic began. This was initiated by the launch at 10:00 PM of six Fairey Fulmars and nine Swordfish from the carrier HMS Victorious. Their inexperienced crews almost attacked HMS Norfolk, which was 23 miles astern of the Bismarck! Getting that mess straightened out, under intense fire and bad weather, they hit the Bismarck with only one torpedo! The next 32 hours, the Bismarck was lost. But on May 26, at 10:30 AM, a Catalina piloted by Ensign Leonard Smith, U.S. Navy, sighted her again. A torpedo attack from HMS Ark Royal that afternoon mistakenly identified HMS Hood for the Bismarck, but the cruiser expertly avoided the 11 torpedoes launched at her! Finally, 3 torpedoes which were launched by bombers at 8:47 PM that night, struck the Bismarck! The next day, British warships finished the job of sinking the Bismarck.”
