She was the last battle ship to be built, her yard number was 1026. there was a further battle ship ordered but then cancelled her yard number was 1045 and her name would have been HMS Temeraire. events soon after the start of the was showed how funerable the battleship had become due to the advance of air power and aircraft carriers.

Got a brilliant book called Bismark, gives the History of the vessel and all involved in her demise! Then it shows the underwater descovery of Bismark and inside stills. Shows that where she sank, co-ordinates, there was no sign, but on further investigation they found a debris trail, and actually she sank onto an underwater mountain and slid down about a mile off course!1 The pics are beautifull and also contain great illustrations!
Will have to dig it out and post the details! thumbsup
