Good evening, Sturm78!

This is one of Italian submarines from BETASOM unit (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BETASOM), most probably, entering Bordeaux and greeted by the German guard of honour. IMHO, this is Luigi Torelli, but I am not sure and will try to do some additional search tomorrow.

Best regards, Aleks

Yes, most probably this is she. I've found the photo below at http://www.regiamarina.net/images/conte ... elli_2.jpg
It seems this is the same submarine (or at least the submarine of her class).

Best regards, Aleks

IMHO, this is one of WW1 M-boots (most probably, type 1916) that were left in Reichsmarine and later in Kriegsmarine.

Well, I tend to think that this is one of Deutschland class ships too. One of the main factors (concerning this photo) is the position of the catapult and board plane.

P.S. Most probably, this is Deutschland herself, as it seems to me that the plane and its catapult are situated in front of the funnel and not behind it, as on Spee and Scheer.

Hello Sturm,

The second picture is clearly a Hipper-class cruiser.

Given the funnel cap and the searchlight, I would say the Blücher, sometime after october 1940.
But I'm not 100% sure it's not the Hipper.

First picture may be some zerstorer (destroyer).

Do you mean October 1939 as Blucher was sunk in April 1940?
