This day (August 28th) in history
Churchill-class nuclear submarine HMS Conqueror was launched on 28 August 1969 in Birkenhead. She remains the only nuclear submarine known to have torpedoed an enemy ship, the latter being the General Belgrano during the Falklands War in 1982. She is also the only British submarine to fly the Jolly Roger when returning from a war patrol since the Second World War. Bravo Zulu Conqueror
