Survivors stated the weather was the main reason for not raising the fake funnel. I think it was make work to provide a morale boost. A group of men were given cigars to smoke for the final touch. A light moment in an otherwise sad story
It seems that there was an intention to alter Bismark's appearance by raising a dummy funnel on the 25.05.1941. The result would have been a silhouette not unlike an Italian battleship the real & dummy being very close together. The obvious question is did it happen?
