They were Argie whales operating inside the exclusion zone, so completely fair game.

Not like the Belgrano fiasco then ;D
Why was the Belgrano a fiasco, it sank didn't it. Probably carrying too many stores to make it very floaty, a common problem for vessels in the South Atlantic at the time.

Those whales could have been carrying WMD, trained whales with WMD. Think about it.

Them Whales could have caused all sort of problems for task force, Moby Dick terrorised the seas sinking ships left and right for years. Obviously the Navy couldn't take any chances with three of them on the loose. Didn't the Canberra also sink a whale by the sure fire method of ramming it at full speed on the way down south?

More to do with poor drills. Leaving doors and hatchs open whilst going into battle is never a good idea on a ship.


I see we've got that magic under water radar action again.

Hmm.. should have flogged the carcases off to the Japs for sushi, sorry research!

Didn't you get the secret memo?
