26th May 1941

26th May 1941 was one of the critical days of World War 2 for the British Empire, as it then still was.  See link below for details of the hunt for the battleship Bismarck that day, also Admiral Cunningham's decision to commit his ships to evacuate Crete, also made that day.

Orcadian author Angus Konstam's very good new book, The Bismarck 1941, is available in the Orcadian Bookshop for £14.99, also on Amazon at a discount.

The biography of Gunner John Berston is available in the South Ronaldsay section of the website.
