German Navy Surrender 1918

Recommended Posts

I went for an interview with the council which covers Dartmouth many years ago.  The guy from the council told me that there used to be a costal inlet which after WW1 had a number of German Submarines tied up in.   The story was where they were latter became a landfill dump and is now a rereation ground.  The German Goverment had asked for permission in more recent years to carry out a exploritory dig but had been refused permission.  Don't know if anyone local can confirm this.

The Royal Naval Firepower museum in Portsmouth have a remarakable collection of small arms that came from the fleet. Though most are in storage, viewings can be arranged.

As a slight aside to this, does anyone know if any of the K Boats still exist?

The K boats were WW1 period STEAM SUBMARINES with a slight design flaw.

 

A comment about them was made by Rear Admiral Ernest W Leir.

"The only good thing about K boats was that they never engaged the enemy."
