When I was 15 my father took me to visit a work colleague of his who had served on the Barham. I asked him what he recalled of the sinking - he told me that he remembered being in the starboard 6" battery and the next thing he knew he was in the sea. His wife had kept several items of memorabilia including a daily newspaper which published on its front page, post war, the well known 'still' of the explosion.
: This footage still is amazing to me even after
: watching it numerous times over the years.
: It is no surprise this footage was kept from
: the British people as long as possible.
: I wonder if anyone has tried to locate and
: document the wreck?
