    Of all the aircraft operated by the Royal Navy since 1912 when the Naval Wing of the Royal Flying Corps was formed, the Swordfish aircraft is historically the most important.

    In its torpedo bombing role, the Swordfish took part in many memorable events in the war: the decimation of the Italian fleet at Taranto in November 1940, the battle of Cape Matapan in March 1941, the crippling of the Bismark, the 'Channel Dash' of the German pocket battleships in February 1942, and a long record of shipping destruction from bases in Malta.

    As the war progressed, the Swordfish went on to such duties as convoy escort and anti-submarine patrols.
