Very interesting indeed...  I've just been to Norway where the Tripitz was last berthed and sunk and I visited a collection of artefacts from this great ship (I also carried back with me a piece of the deck planking Smiley. I'll post some pictures later. After the war the wreck was purchased by an enterprising young man who took several years of continuous work to take her apart. He became a millionaire as there was a lot of expensive material on board besides the quality steel of its structure. There's a hotel in Oslo that's almost exclusively furnished with furniture taken from the Tirpitz...

An extremely interesting part of the Tiritz attacks story is the British Tallboy bomb used. It was a special 12,00lb bomb with a heavy charge of "Torpex" high explosive and an armour piercing frontal part. One bomb was carried by each Lancaster bomber. An even greater bomb carried by the Lancaster was the Grand Slam weighing 22,000lbs! I think it was carried with bomb bay doors removed due to the bulk.
