Leutnant Zur See Willibald Volsing

Joining the Kriegsmarine in 1942, Willi Völsing was Senior Controller in the Gunnery Fire Control Section on Tirpitz, one of the most important gunnery positions on the ship, passing vital information between the ship's guns and the ship's commanders. After the Tirpitz capsized, he was one of the few fortunate survivors to be released from deep inside the ship by rescuers cutting into the upturned hull.

 The heavy cruiser HMS Dorsetshire is brought up to sink the blazing wreck of the Bismarck with torpedoes at around 10:30 hours on the morning of May 27th 1941.  The once proud German ship had been ruthlessly pounded into a twisted and burning wreck by the British battleships Rodney and King George V.  HMS Dorsetshire and HMS Maori combed the area of the sinking for survivors, between them picking up a total of 110 out of an original complement of 2,300.

 Built at Toulon in 1803, Bucentaure was the flagship of Admiral Villeneuve at the Battle of Trafalgar on 21st October 1805 and the first to be almost completely disabled by a massive broadside from HMS Victory as Nelson broke through the enemy line.  Bucentaure was taken as a prize by the British fleet, but was lost in the great storm that followed the battle.

Bucentaure by Ivan Berryman.
 Launched in 1797, the USS Constitution was the third of her class to be constructed at Edmund Hartt's shipyard in Boston, Massachusetts, this fine ship spending most of her early years in local waters, protecting merchantmen from French marauders.  She is best remembered, however, for her decisive conquests against British ships during the war of 1812, among them the Guerriere against whom the Constitution gained her nickname 'Old Ironsides'.  She continued to serve until 1881 and is still afloat today, the oldest seagoing warship in the world.

USS Constitution - 'Old Ironsides' by Ivan Berryman.
 Undetected, the battlecruisers Scharnhorst and Gneisenau, together with the cruiser Prinz Eugen and supporting vessels, had escaped from the French port of Brest, and were making an audacious dash - in broad daylight and under the noses of the enemy - to the safety of the Elbe Estuary.  But first they must sail through the Straits of Dover, one of the narrowest and most heavily defended straits in the world.  Everything depended on surprise - and air cover.  Given the job of providing that air cover was one of Hitler's youngest Generals, Adolf Galland, who through diligent planning and daring tactics ensured the operation was a complete success. Galland later described the mission as one of the most important and successful of his career.
The Channel Dash by Robert Taylor. (GS)
 Arguably the best known warship in the world, and one of only a few survivors of her era, HMS Victory was the flagship of Admiral Lord Horatio Nelson at Trafalgar in 1805, leading the victorious British fleet into battle against the combined French and Spanish navies.  Severely damaged during the battle, she remained afloat at Portsmouth into the 20th century and is now preserved there in dry dock for future generations to visit.  Extraordinarily, HMS Victory is still a commissioned ship in the Royal Navy and is frequently used for ceremonial duties.

HMS Renown



Launched : 4th March 1916
HMS Renown was a battlecruiser built at Fairfield and re-engined at Cammell Laird. She was launched on the 4th of March 1916. Between the wars HMS Renown had a major refit at Portsmouth from May 1923 to August 1926. She had her belt armour increased using the plate armour intended for the Chilean battleship Almirante Cochrane. Her horizontal armour was increased from 1-inch to 1.5 inch. HMS Renown served in all major theatres during world war two. During September 1939 she served in the North Sea and during October 1939 took part in the search for the German surface raiders Admiral Graf Spee and Deutschland. During August 1940 the Renown exchanged fire with the German battlecruisers Gneisenau and Scharnhorst but only received slight damage. During the rest of 1940 and 1941 HMS Renown served with Force H. Renown also took part in the pursuit of the Bismarck, during May 1941. During November 1942 she supported the Allied landing in North Africa. During early 1944 HMS Renown joined the British eastern Fleet supporting the carrier raids, and also the bombarding of Surabaya. At Durban she had a refit and then returned to home water in March 1945. Due to her poor condition HMS renown was put into reserve and was finally scrapped at Faslane, Scotland on August 1948.

Scrapped at Faslane, Scotland in August 1948.
