On 24th May 1941 at 05:52 the pride of the British fleet , HMS Hood, engaged the mighty German ship Bismarck in battle. At 06:00 the Hood was hit and it sunk in less than 3 minutes.
Only 3 of her 1418 crew survived – the single biggest loss of life in a single engagement in the history of the Royal Navy but why this 860 feet long ship sank so quickly has been a mystery for over 70 years.
Now, the team that discovered the giant wreck eleven years ago is on its way back to finally find the answer.
