Operation Judgement Swordfish Print
The attack on Taranto was the first major victory for naval air powerin the world and blueprint for the strike on Pearl Harbor.
The Fleet Air Arm played an active part in the fight against the Axisforces in the Mediterranean.
Their greatest achievement was the strike against the Italian Fleet at Taranto, 11 November 1940 by four Fleet Air Arm squadrons and 40 or so men who carried out this daring raid.
In this picture we see the Swordfish flown by Lt. FMA Torrense-Spence and Lt. AWF Sutton, having just released its torpedo.

The bravery of the Swordfish aircrew in this and all other operationsis a matter of history and must never be forgotten.
