Re: HMS Prince of Wales - Unlucky Ship?
i was under the impression that when she turned away she was down to ONE working gun! others were quickly back in operation but likely to fail again
Well, consider their namesakes. Prince of Wales was named for Edward VIII: shiny but not quite sturdy.
Duke of York was named for George VI: latecomer but eventually made a great show of things.
