Notes

: Picture caption: "Das 31 000 t große britische Schlachtschiff ,,Barham" wird von der britischen Admiralität als verloren gemeldet. Es handelt sich hierbei um das Kriegsschiff, das am 26.11.41 im Mittelmeer von einem deutschen U=Boot unter Führung von Kapitänleutnant Freiherr von Tiesenhausen torpediert worden war." Note 2.) The aerial identification stripes on one of the ship's forward turrets show that it was participating in the Neutrality Patrol during the Spanish Civil War when this photo was taken. The distinctive gondola-like boat below the battleship suggests the location is the British fleet base of Malta. There exists spectacular film footage of the "Barham" turning over and exploding while still steaming ahead. Note 3.) Title translates German picture caption
