The man who spotted the Bismarck is dead

Post by Andy H » 09 Mar 2003 23:39

Capt G. “Hank” Rotherham (FAA) died at the age of 85. He served on the A/C’s Furious,Glorious & Courageous-surviving the sinking of the latter by U-Boat.
Whilst flying a Maryland near Norway he spotted the Bismarck and sent the signal that started the chase and destruction of the Bismarck.
