Another one

Ciao Marty and all, of course this can help you too. http://www.history.navy.mil/photos/images/h69000/h69733.jpg As you can see the rack is fully loaded with 3 depth charges, so either this photo was taken before the battle or after when they re-loaded the rack that was having only one depth charge ...

Bismarck launch

Ciao all, very good photos of the place. I have been there on May 27th, 2005 and it is a very emotional place to be.
