825 Naval Air Squadron took delivery of the Swordfish in 1936, replacing the Fairey Seal and Blackburn Baffin. At the start of the Second World War the FAA had 13 squadrons operating the Swordfish. Despite its age the Swordfish was an outstanding combat aircraft serving in the Norwegian campaign, in the Mediterranean and famously took part in the sinking of the Bismarck whilst operating from HMS Victorious in the Atlantic. The Swordfish remained in service until 1946, but one remains flight worthy with the Royal Navy Historic Flight.
