Second British action in Narvik harbour by G. H. Davis
The spearhead of the Royal Navy's second attack advancing on Narvik, putting the enemy destroyers to flight. The advance of Vice-Admiral Whitworth's force upon Narvik was preceded by super-destroyers of the Tribal class in line abreast. Behind them was the Warspite, sending 15-inch shells over them. Seen here are the trapped German destroyers turning to escape up the smaller fjords, where they were later hunted down.
