Last survivor of the sinking of the HMS Hood dies

Another witness of history gone forever :frowning:

Ted Briggs. Amazing that only 3 people got off that ship.

I am amazed anyone got off the ship. It seems the main magazine exploded and the ship sank in just three minutes.

I can’t find it right now, but I swear that at one time I read that one of the survivor’s battle station was laying on the main deck as they were not needed inside the ship.:eek:
fro some reason this freaked the shit out of me.
