Photo Gallery - U-Boat U-47

The U-boat, U-47, was commanded by Gunther Prien, who entered the Scapa Flow in September 1939 and sunk H.M.S. Royal Oak. For this action he was awarded the Knights Cross. The photo was taken in 1940, note Prien's Mad Bull insignia on the conning tower. The insignia was adopted by the 7th U-flottilla.
