mmmm. I suppose it all depends on which Bismarck we are talking about  O0 ..........Derek

....this site also suggest as SMS Bismarck as of 1941............but also notes the Class as DEU Bismark

Richard/Brian........I fully acknowledge one of the WEB sites must be incorrect.....I think it is clear that all of the earlier builds were termed as SMS Furst Bismack........Derek %)

It changed to DKM from SMS when the German navy became the Kreigsmarine in 1935.

Did'nt they stop using Sein Majestats Schiff (HMS) in 1918 when they booted the Kaiser out?
