Notes

: Picture caption: "Der Führer besucht Wilhelmshaven und begrüsst die Mannschaften erfolgreicher U-Boote, unter denen sich auch die Besatzung des U-Bootes befindet, welches den englischen Flugzeugträger "Courageous" versenkte. Der Führer grüsst die angetretene Besatzung." Note 2.) German submarine U-29 torpedoed and sank the British aircraft carrier HMS "Courageous" on September 17th, 1939. The first Royal navy ship sunk in World War II, the carrier had ironically been hunting for submarines at the time it was lost. Note the blackout covers on the headlights of Hitler's car. Note 3.) Title translates German picture caption
