Hi Alec,Alecsandros wrote: "The British reported it having been hit on "salvo 3", out of 5 or 6 salvos fired."
British witnesses (I have posted Rowell above) says differently. Your source please ?
Sorry, I don't see any turn from Bismarck. Bismarck turrets were never wooded (at 6:03 the enemy is at around 50° from the stern of Bismarck.....). Possibly at the end of the sequence (with BS running west on 270°) the fore turrets were close to the stops and were not fired......you wrote: "If the film that we see would be post-torpedo alarm, then Bismarck would be firing from C+D only during the film"
What is 100% sure is that, during the whole film, all the turrets are always trained aft and this is only possible after 6:03. In addition in your hypothesis PG would be between BS and PoW, slightly behind BS at 6:01, while she was ahead of BS......
This frame is showing the fall of the last PoW salvo in local control (the second one we see in the film, landed after 6:04, see green arrow), BS has just fired both the fore and aft turrets (please see the film few seconds before this frame) and you see clearly the turrets with the gun barrels trained well aft (red arrow). Therefore the whole film is taken after 6:03 with Bismarck on 270° course...... Bye, Alberto
