Three lovely shots with the last one something special.

Not sure if true, but in the 60's when I was attached to the Ark Royal I was told by one of the more 'modern pilots' that the Swordfish was one of the most difficult of kites to fly? If true, the pilot must have been crapping himself. Although having said that it's probably easier to land on solid ground than at sea.

Hi Ulfric,

Yes the salute, it is for the memory of the Swordfish crews I am sure, they were so brave to attack the enemy head on at such slow speed, two very famous actions the battle of Tarranto bay Italy which stopped the Italian fleet being able to control the Mediterranean sea and the attack on the pocket battleship the Bismark which would have been a major problem in the Atlantic and beyond if she had not been stopped.
