Clip from "Our Fighting Navy" 1937

Post by paulcadogan »

A bit far fetched, but sort of weirdly prophetic...

A little C or D-class cruiser takes on a "South American battleship" played by an R-class BB. The result - the cruiser torpedoes the battleship and sinks her....

As explained in the Youtube description, the RN provided the ships for the movie as a "recruitment" tool. We in Jamaica would say that they put "goat mouth" on themselves, given what happened to the Royal Oak two years later.....
