A newspapercutting showing a Fairey Seafox, a 1930s British reconnaissance floatplane built for the Fleet Air Arm and designed to be catapulted from the deck of a light cruiser during the Second World War. In 1939, a Seafox played a part in the Battle of the River Plate against the German pocket battleship Admiral Graf Spee, by spotting for the naval gunners. This ended with Admiral Graf Spee's scuttling and destruction.
