This is a limited edition print of a Robert Taylor painting and is signed by Vice Admiral Sir Richard Janvrin KCB, DSC and Commander Charles Lamb, DSO, DSC, RN (Rtd). The Fairey Swordfish was a torpedo bomber built by the Fairey Aviation Company and used by the Fleet Air Arm of the Royal Navy during the Second World War.
Affectionately known as the "Stringbag" by its crews, it was outdated by 1939, but achieved some spectacular successes during the war, notably the sinking of one and damaging two battleships of the Regia Marina (the Italian Navy) in the Battle of Taranto and the famous crippling of the Bismarck.
