HMS Antelope

This painting by Charles David Cobb shows an Argentine plane breaking up over HMS Antelope. HMS 'Antelope' had already been hit by a bomb when defending San Carlos water but it hit an attacking Argentinian aircraft in the wing which then goes on to hit her mast and explodes, cartwheeling in pieces towards HMS 'Broadsword'.
