These are original pieces taken from
Swordfish being restored .
I have provided copies of original part lists as well as photos of replacement
parts in the new sections now awaiting fitting together (taken by me at Brough
The signatures are really special....all being of WWII FAA Aircrew, mainly TAGS
(Telegraphist Air Gunner) obtained by me last year....pictures to show. Of
these, that of Les Sayer is the most interesting,
he was in the back of the first strike on Bismarck (825 Sqn from Victorious on
25 May 1941). They hit, but only ruptured a fuel Tank.
The other 'big' sig. is that of John Moffatt....the pilot
from 820 Sqn (off Ark Royal the next day) who is
credited with the rudder strike that was to mark the end of Bismarck.
John flew down to see us in his own plane (!!!!!!)last year (Perth to Sherburn -
where the Swordfish was built!!!)...I have included photos of John on that day.
His a/c is registered G-ARK ; How cool is that ? Final twist in the story.....NF389
was one of the 2 a/c in the 1960 movie 'Sink the Bismarck'.
