Two crews members perched on the bow of the sunken German destroyer Bernd von Arnim
Fascinating images which provide a snapshot of life on a German U-Boat have been unearthed.
Interestingly, the photographs give us an insight into joyous occasions on the U-976 destroyer including alcohol fuelled parties and gatherings in the mess hall.
The photo album which was collated by First Officer Lieutenant Wilhelm Hinrichs has now emerged for auction and is tipped to sell for £1,200.
The U-976 was sunk on March 25, 1944, just a few months before the Normandy landings, near St Nazaire in France by gunfire from two British Mosquito fighter-bombers.
