Another very minor point with no consequences : during the final fight HMS Rodney was allowed to torpedo Bismarck. She fired twice at Bismarck using her submerged tubes with NO results despite the second torpedo hitting the battleship.
This may be a rare if not only case of a battleship torpedoing another one.
Here are extracts of Rodney's log as reported by Joseph H. Wellings, assistant US Naval Attaché who was aboard Rodney, returning home. His experience was published by the Naval War College Press in 1983.
