    II can name the three individuals in this short clip: the tallest in the Admiral's uniform is my grandfather, Rear-Admiral W F Wake-Walker, commander of the 1st cruiser squadron who lled the shadowing of the Bismarck in the Denmark Strait aboard HMS Norfolk. The taller of the two captains is Captain F H Dalrymple-Hamilton, captain of the battleship HMS Rodney and the third officer is Captain H C Bovell who commanded the aircraft carrier, HMS Victorious.
