She then travelled in towards Scapa pier towards the buoy marking the wreck of HMS Royal Oak, which was torpedoed by the Germam u boat U-47, commanded by “Kapitanleutnant Gunter Prien”

It was 100 years to the day, that a Sopwith biplane, flown by Squadron Commander Edwin Dunning, touched down on the deck of HMS Furious. Sadly a week later he lost his life attempting to land again on HMS Furious, a crash landing coupled by strong winds blew him overboard.
