Swordfish Swatch - Own part of a legend

Regular price £15.00

There are only 5 technically airworthy Fairey Swordfish in the world and three of them have their home with Navy Wings at RNAS Yeovilton. Regarded as hopelessly obsolete at the beginning of WWII, it emerged at the end of the conflict as a legendary icon. It acquitted itself well in all the theatres in which it served, in particular on anti-submarine duty in the Battle of the Atlantic and with the Arctic convoys, but also in such actions as Taranto and the sinking of the Bismarck. An extraordinary record for an extraordinary aircraft.

You can own a piece of real Swordfish canvas. We also have a limited number that have been signed by veterans who served in Swordfish during WWII.
