Target Bearing 270
by Robert Taylor
At sunrise on 12 November, 1944, led by Wing Commander James Tait, Lancasters of 617 Squadron RAF prepare to make their bombing run on the German battleship Tirpitz, lying in the Norwegian fjord at Tromsø.
This was their third and final attack and direct hits with their “Tallboys” finally brought about the demise of the pride of the German Fleet.
