I was took by the Captain, a Capt Barrdo? the they were removing the hull of the German battle ship ''Tirptz'' which was sunk in June 1940. I was on the bridge at the time and had a small lens on the camera so it does not show much.

Hi Blair, Tirpitz was finally sunk by RAF Lancasters using 10,000lb bombs on 12 November 1944, the last of many and varied attacks.
Regards, Brent

Sailed past the wreck in 1952 while on the Beckenham (Watts Watts) and there was more of the wreck to see back then.
