Interesting shot showing the dark coloured square metal plate towards her stern covering a hole made by a bomb from an Argentinian Skyhawk aircraft. Fortunately it failed to explode. Thanks for showing the picture.

Regards.....Paul

Flares, etc, from Boardsword I assume? Happy to be on the final leg.

Bomb failed to explode due to aircraft flying too low for detonation. As in dambusters this low height caused the bomb to bounce on the water before hitting Broadsword.
