Re: "Graf Spee" Album

I don't see the need for a priest to salute at all...... I agree……… but I think this photo shows that the command “Sieg!” was given and that command had to be answered by all present with a raised right arm and a loud “Heil!” [Hail to Victory!]. At such an occasion, the “Sieg heil!” was repeated th...

Re: "Graf Spee" Album

I think you are right. These pictures are even better. Thank you for pointing this out to me. It is becoming more and more difficult on the Internet to give credit where credit is due.

Re: "Graf Spee" Album

Often the Nazi salute was not given in silence, but was also accompanied by a loud: "Heil Hitler!" I think I never saw a priest raise his arm and say "Heil Hitler!" at a funeral wenn I was an altarboy; some were military funerals.

Re: "Graf Spee" Album

@Antonio It is interesting that you and I saw the priest instantly. Also, I think that Langsdorff’s salute is in the Kaiser’s (British) military style. See Lütjens sloppy salutes (thumb position!) to Hitler. The less-than-snappy style may mean something. http://www.bismarck-class.dk/forum_images/lue...

"Graf Spee" Album

This album contains photos from various sources, some probably without permission, but it is an interesting collection of the ship and the crew of the "Graf Spee". http://bbs.ziling.com/viewthread.php?ac ... tid=816548

Marine Dienstvorschrift Nr. 111

Where can I find a copy of the M.Dv. 111? I heard that Bismarck used these disks to code recognition light signals (Erkennungssignale E.S.).
Also, any additional information of how these disks were used.

CAMOUPEDIA: USN WWI Camouflage

It is hard to believe how much artistic and scientific talent participated in the design of WWI dazzle camouflage. Roy Behrens, a professor of art history, wrote an extensive analytical treatise on this subject. The accidental encounter with this new book arose from a photo for sale on eBay. The pho...

Re: The Prince Imposter - Der Schein-Prinz

To me it looks a lot more like the Admiral Scheer.
