Sunk 27th May 1941
Built by Blohm und Voss of Hamburg and launched on the 14th February 1939, the Bismarck spent the following 18 months fitting out. On the 24th of August 1940 the Bismarck was handed over to the German Navy. During the battle of the Denmark Strait, her main adversary, HMS Hood blew up after receiving hits to the magazine. In response to this, the Royal Navy vowed to sink the Bismarck, and on 27th May 1941, just days after the battle with HMS Hood, Bismarck lay on the sea floor. With her rudder jammed by a torpedo hit from a Swordfish aircraft, she was a sitting duck for the combined firepower of HMS Rodney and HMS King George V, who ruthlessly pounded the German battleship before she was finished off by torpedoes from British cruisers.

HMS Dorsetshire was built at Portsmouth Dockyard, launched 29th January 1929 and completed 30th September 1930. She was part of a class of two ships which included HMS Norfolk. She carried a seaplane in 1931 and had a catapult added in 1932. At the outbreak of the Second World War, HMS Dorsetshire served in the East Indies in 1939, then the South Atlantic in 1940 - 1941. She took part in the final action against the Bismarck, firing 254 shells and three torpedoes of which two finally sank the German battleship. In 1942 HMS Dorsetshire went to the Eastern Fleet and was bombed by Japanese aircraft west of Ceylon and sank, 5th April 1942.
