The venerable Fairy Swordfish was the Fleet Air Arm's premier torpedo-bomber at the start of World War II. It may have been archaic in appearance, but its courageous crews proved time and time again that it was a potent fighting machine. 'Stringbags' as they were affectionately known, served in several important roles and theatres including Coastal Command, the Mediterranean and flying from MAC-ships protecting North Atlantic and Arctic convoys.
