HMS Prince of Wales was a King George V-class battleship of the Royal Navy. She was built at the Cammell Laird shipyard in Birkenhead, England, and she had an extensive battle history in her brief career.
She was attacked and damaged by German aircraft in August 1940 while still being outfitted in her drydock. HMS Prince of Wales was involved in many key actions of the Second World War, including the May 1941 Battle of the Denmark Strait where she scored three hits on the German battleship Bismarck, forcing Bismarck to abandon her raiding mission and head to port for repairs.
HMS Prince of Wales was sunk alongside her consort, the battlecruiser HMS Repulse, by Japanese bombers when they became the first capital ships to be sunk solely by air power on the open sea, a harbinger of the diminishing role this class of ships was subsequently to play in naval warfare. The wreck of Prince of Wales lies upside down in 223 feet (68 m) of water, near Kuantan, in the South China Sea.
