Tirpitz Finally Sent To Bottom 'Earthquake' Bombs Deprive Germans Of Last Big Battleship LONDON, Nov. 14 (UP) — Germany's vaunted battleship, the Tirpitz, lies wrecked In the Icy waters of a Norwegian fjord. That marks tile end of almost hree years of British and Russian attacks on the Tirplt?,, and it marks off another of Hitler's dreams, a dream of challenging the British might at sea. For last night Hitler's last effective battleship was reported sunk. Prime Minister Churchill has sent a special message of congratulation to all concerned in the eight attacks on the Tirpltz, the sister ship of the mighty Blsmart. Unlike the Bls'mnrk, which went down In battle, the Tirpltj! was Wrecked before she hnd once used her great guns In battle. A force of British Lancaster bombers, using six-ton earthquake bombs finally sank the super- tlreatljiaiighl yesterday in the Tromso fjord, where the TirpiU lay at anchor manned only by a skeleton crew. The big Lancaster.? descended upon the fjord Sunday morning and dropped their armor-piercing bombs before the Nazis could light smoke smudges and hide the chained ship. Three bombs smacked down on the long deck of the German battleship, amidships, in the bow, in the stern, and It was nil over One pilot~Fllght Lieutenant B A Buekham of Australia says—"The 'ills came in direct succession The Tirpitz' guns had been firing like blazes when the first bomb hit. But after that her guns stopped firing." Smoke begun to pour up, first in a column, nnd then spreading over the ship like a mushroom. Buckhnm snw several explosions, then one of his crewmen yelled over the intercom: "She's on fire skipper! she's on fire." There was another explosion as the.plane turned aw-ay. Then, Buck- liain; ,'syung the piano ;b'ack'flpr»(» !ast minute view. "But; 'by'1 use' time we got rbuud," says Buckhaui, "(he Trlpitz was on her side." So fast did the vessel sink that It's believed most of the skeleton crew aboard was drowned or killed. Reconnaissance photographs give the latest story on the former o.uecn of the German navy.
