Barracudas return to HMS Victorious

Barracudas return to HMS Victorious

Here we see a force of Fairey Barracudas returning to HMS Victorious after a succesful attack on shipping off the coast of Norway on 26 April 1944. The operation was meant to have been an attack on the Tirpitz (Operation Planet), but this had to be cancelled due to poor weather over the target, so the shipping was attacked instead.
