Hello to all
; a little more................
Wilhelmshaven - Winter 1939!
Torpedo being taken aboard by one U boat Type IXA by the forward hatch. As it can be seen the torpedo (in this Type) was loaded by the bow (warhead first) with an inclination of 35º. Date: 22 December 1939.
A small pole with a pennant and another in the periscope is also observed in the conning tower. Signal of maneuvering with explosives? (second picture).
