Not all fun and games, crew members scrub the pots and pans.<br />
<br />
Fascinating images which provide a snapshot of life on a German U-Boat have been unearthed.<br />
<br />
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.<br />
<br />
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.<br />
<br />
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.
