Wanted to share autographed print of the Hood signed by

Ted Briggs 1 of only 3 men that survived from 1,418

sailors.

 

The german battle ship Bismarck sank the Hood in a naval battle

of epic results!

 

Ted Briggs died at 85

 

Any one have thoughts or items from HMS Hood or Bismarck?

I believe I have its German counterpart at home, a photo of Bismarck signed by survivor Bruno Rzonca.

This isn't it, but one I found online:

Super cool to see! Just watched "Sink the Bismark!" again last week!

 

For a good book, take a look at Robert Ballard's book about Bismark. Gives fab history of ship and discovery of wreck site.

Very very cool and I am sure very very rare as I heard he very rarely signed  Those are both very neat items.
