U Boats at Calais?

Post by don1 » 15 Jan 2003 20:32

I seem to recall that when I was a kid in the late 1950s and early 1960s seeing a number of U boats tied up at Calais awaiting their fate. I also recall seeing many sunken ships still in the harbour with masts bobbing up and down. Would this be correct about the U Boats? And why were they left to rot about 15 years after the war as many other U Boats were scuttled under Operation Deadlight - and/or under German orders at the end of the war?
