Default Re: British Naval gun support 1945-1982

With regard to the 9 X 16 inch guns carried on HMS Nelson and Rodney, it should be noted that HMS Rodney played a major part in the destruction of the German battleship Bismarck. A recent underwater expedition revealed extensive damage to Bismark from 16 in gun fire (as well as 14 inch gun fire from KGV).

Later Nelson and Rodney provided effective Naval Gun Fire Support during and after the D-Day Landings.
