<br />
Fascinating early photos of submarine warfare featuring close quarters views of German battleships have come to light 100 years later.<br />
<br />
The photo albums were collated by British Commander Maurice Bailward who documented every stage of his naval career.<br />
<br />
Cmdr Bailward attended Royal Naval College in Osborne, Isle of Wight, from 1906 and 1908, the same time as Edward, the Prince of Wales.<br />
<br />
He was involved in many of the major sea battles of World War Two as well as the British effort to help the Whites during the Russian Civil War of 1919.<br />
<br />
The albums have emerged for sale at auction from a family descendant with Lawrences Auctioneers, of Crewkerne, Somerset.
