PICTURED: The photographer also snapped aircrafts ditching in the sea in unrelated incidents as well as more light-hearted images of the crew relaxing on deck and posing together - Some men can be seen in their swimming costumes
Never-before-seen photos of a little known peacetime disaster in which a British aircraft carrier rammed a French liner causing 33 deaths have come to light 91 years later.
HMS Glorious was on manoeuvres off Spain on April 1, 1931, with 17 of her Fairey Flycatcher aircraft flying above when she entered a fogbank.
Her crew only noticed the SS Florida sailing across her at 30 knots at the last minute.
A sickening collision followed in which 32 passengers and one crewman on board the Florida were drowned or crushed.
