Nice Harrier painting

Three more Harrier paintings plus Wasp vs Santa Fe.

Nice paintings, but, the harrier seems to have missed the Fearless/ intrepid.
didnt realise there was a Wasp attack on the Santa Fe, Brilliants embarked flight flew a Lynx, there was a Wessex from Glamorgan ( Colin Vickers RIP ) IMMC and another from either Plymouth or one of the other frigates doing the NGS. Standing by to be corrected.

Worlds first Air-to-Sub missile attack, i do believe.




On Sunday morning (25th) as "Santa Fe" headed out on the surface, she was spotted off Cumberland Bay by Lt Cmdr Stanley's Wessex. Near-missed by two Mk.11 depth charges and with some damage, the submarine limped back towards Grytviken. As she did, one of "Brilliant's" Lynx attacked with a Mk.46 torpedo, the two "Endurance" Wasps (Flight Commander, Lt Cmdr Ellerbeck) fired AS.12 missiles hitting her fin, "Plymouth's" Wasp fired another AS.12 and both of "Brilliant's" Wasps strafed with machine guns. The warships meanwhile headed for the action at high speed. Although the attacks only slightly damaged the "Santa Fe" and wounded one crewman, by noon she was abandoned alongside the jetty at King Edward Point. (Later, on being moved to Grytviken, one of "Santa Fe's" crew was shot and killed in the mistaken belief he was trying to scuttle the boat.) think the Plymouth wasps Aimer was Lacm Joe Harper.. Waspie will put me right

Either santa Fe was lucky or accuracy was not too good. 2 depth charges, a torpedo, 3 helo's firing AS12 missiles plus strafing and she was only slightly damaged! I appreciate that the missiles hit the fin, which was fibre glass, so reducing damage but that's a helluva lot of ordnance fired with little result.

Brilliants Lynx didn't launch the torpedo. The lynx merely hovered astern of the boat with the threat that if they submerged the torpedo would be launched. Believe from talking to our aircrew the only ordnance used was the A12 and machine gun.

Pretty certain Brilliants lynx came back with the torpedo slung underneath. Seem to recall conversation that the lynx with the torpedo prevented him from diving the boat. I landed with my first aid party to treat injured Argie in shackeltons hut . Don't know where your log is from Scouse, but certain Brilliants lynx came back with one slung underneath the cab.
