Welcome Nicole

Afraid your showing typical Septic knowledge of the war. Bismarck sailed in company of Prinz Eugen when they fought the Hood and Prince of Wales (Hood a battlecruiser and PoW a battleship). Prinz Eugen had to return to port and Bismarck was tracked and then destroyed by Force H and some others (in a nutshell)

Nikki
PS, Guys, Please Understand, Im still learning, that why im here, hoping you guys can explain stuff to me!!
 
#11
your almost, right! there are Three ships of the Royal Navy have borne the name HMS Glowworm after the insect, whilst two more were planned:

* Glowworm, was briefly the name of a coastal destroyer launched on 12 December 1906 and renamed HMS TB7. It was sold in May 1921.

* Glowworm, an Insect class gunboat, launched on 5 February 1916 and sold in 1928.

* Glowworm, a G-class destroyer launched on 22 July 1935, sunk on 8 April 1940 by the German heavy cruiser Admiral Hipper off Norway.

No, no you are completely wrong. Glowworm was in that operation on the 976th of Docimbril 1576. Then Admirool Hippy was taken to Lindun by airship from where he directed the assault on William The Conker's 5th Maritime Brigat as they came ashure on the 143rd of Juneyoobruary in 1323.

HTH
Sorry to put my pedant hat on here but surely it was only the 4th Maritime Brigat, there having been the inaugural ram-shantery in Prince Dukington (2nd)'s honour, thereby being claimed a Maritime Brigat by the populace but officially and monarchaically being a Ramshant?
You know, you may well be correct. I was of course referring to the 15th edition of Ram-shantery for beginners, which I have just purchased from Ebay for a mere £5798.5369p, a bargain I'm sure you'll agree, anyway I digress - the 4th Maritime Brigat were indeed Prince Dukington's honor BUT my mistook was made during research as the assault in Docimbril was not directed by the Admirool but rather by a tardy road sweeper from Accrington. So, thanks for putting me right on that and hopefully we can now all move forward to get to the bottom of this mysteriosio mystery
Ah yes, the very assualt lending to the initial usage of the old name "Jack Tar" :thumbleft:

Fantastic reading.

guys,
no, picking one for this: Guys,
This is kind of the same idea, but it's a little bit difference then one we did on here About Her vs. the two heavy cruisers Norfolk and Dorsetshire. If Renown and Repulse went up against PE, could they handle her, and get a tow line on her to keep her from helping her brother Bismarck in his last fight against KGV, Rodney, Norfolk and Dorsetshire?

I guess what i was trying to ask is could they hold on to her with the towlines til, bismarck got sank, then when KGV and Rodney, when back to scapa flow, the four of them take her back with them, but if they able to get a prize crew on board, they dont have to two her, but say in a net around her, so she can run for freedom, that what i meant ok..

What i mean by getting in a net around her with KGV, Rodney,behind her and Renown, her sister on each side of PE! if she gets in to a wiggle and squirming mood, how do they handle her or is she dog meat? And Explain why, it would help me understand better? im keeping it here!

Catching PRINZ EUGEN with a net does sound like a jolly humane way of conducting sea warfare. I’m sure the late Fuhrer wouldn’t have been too amused with it, though. One assumes that her 8 x 8â€and12 x 4†guns and the 12 torpedo tubes would have been permanently silenced without sinking her, of course.

I take it, young lady (I assume), you’ve studied the engagement beyond the pages of Wikipedia?
