At 4.25pm in the Mediterranean on November 25, 1941, a salvo of torpedoes from a German submarine struck from close range on HMS Barham. Within four minutes, the battleship had listed over to Port and the ships magazines had exploded, sinking the battleship and killing 863 men. The terrifying explosion was caught on film by cameraman John Turner who was on an adjacent ship.
