Default Re: Scuttling of the High Sea Fleet

I just saw your note about the surrender of the German Fleet. I'm actually working on my next book on the Scuttle (my first book was on Jutland, called Jutland.The Unfinished battle). I would be very happy to pay any costs that you incur in getting copies to me. If you would be kind enough to do so. Best wishes, Nick

Hello scapa1916, which post are you referring to as several refer to documents?

Fascinating!

(From BBC News)

First echosound image of Scapa Flow battleship wreck

"The first image generated of a scuttled German battleship at Scapa Flow after a multibeam echosounder survey has been released.

The Markgraf was among dozens of ships from the German High Seas Fleet scuttled by their crews off Orkney in 1919 following the end of World War One.

Data has been collected during a major maritime archaeology project.

The first image created shows the upturned hull of the Markgraf
."

Thank you, Tim,

This is no doubt part of the "surging" for what is to be known as
"Scapa 100."

I note from the last post of Tims that two divers were caught removing items from the wrecks , and were fined 18000 each ........Excellent , as I have said before I personally have no time for this type of diving by trophy hunters on recognised protected wrecks
