The historic daylight attack on the Tirpitz in Alten Fjord on 12 November 1944 was led by Wing Commander J.B “Willie” Tait. A formation of 31 Lancaster bombers from 617 and 9 Squadrons attacked the German battleship from 11,000 feet, each dropping a tall-boy bomb. Tait’s bomb aimer, Flying Officer Danny Daniels, was credited with a direct hit and the Tirpitz took on a noticeable list. The great battleship later rolled over and sank.
