Further to my last post, see here.
In a Channel 5 television program "Bismarck: Hitler's Greatest Warship" there was a short film sequence on High Ball testing The sequence showed HMS Malaya as the target. The only film I had seen previously showed Courbet as the target. R A Burt book notes Malaya was the target for training for attacks on Tirpitz by midget submarines. Were both Courbet and Malaya used in the test and has anybody got a source for Courbet camouflage whilst it was a subject of the tests.
