Attached you will find an audio account and transcript that was made when I interviewed my father about his time in the Royal Navy during WW2. This section refers specifically to what he witnessed from the bridge of HMS Warspite during the 2nd Battle of Narvik (13th April 1940). I have other documents that add context to this story but I have not included them at this time.
