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

Default Re: Scapa Flow: Scuttling of the High Sea Fleet

I have, two articles about the German High Sea Fleet, written for a book published in 1937/38 or there about, "Shipping Wonders of the World, volumes 1 & 2" Edited by Clarence Winchester and published The Fleetway House London.

The first is titled "The Surrender of the German Fleet" no author is attributed.

The second is titled "Raising the German Fleet"again no author is attributed.

Due to the age of books i cannot scan the articles but I have taken photos of both, how can I upload them ?

You will find info on how to attach images here, however you may have to resize the images as the filesize straight out of the camera may be too large. Unlike Facebook, they are not automatically resized on uploading.

Thanks for posting these articles Bruce: some information I had not seen in other sources, such as the location of the German ships’ anchorage in the Firth of Forth. One small typo: the torpedo boat mined en route to the surrender was V30, not V20 (there was no torpedoboat called V20 in 1918).
