This is a well known picture of German submarine SM U-118 washed ashore at Hastings, Sussex on April 15th, 1919.
She surrendered on February 23rd , 1919. Would have been transferred to France, but the tow cable snapped during her voyage to France and she went aground off Hastings. She was later broken up.

She has been around, been analyzed and dicussed from a number of angles. But it is still a good photograph, surely another angle can be found. https://www.shipsnostalgia.com/gallery/showphoto.php/photo/61578/title/u-boat-ashore-/cat/523

'there we go', - and learning a little more, there was no info with the photo, ex.Imperial War Museum, and had wondered about that beach, Hastings - quite famous, it had the largest beach-launched fishing fleet in Europe back then. one of the medieval Cinque Ports.
- and holders of the world mini golf championships today. That's my limit these days, a round of mini golf, when it gets going again.
