ABANDON SUB

Abandon Sub! ...

   The crew of a German U-Boat, conning tower awash as she sinks, prepares to abandon ship after being caught on the surface and attacked somewhere in the Atlantic. Note the men crowding the "Wintergarten" gun platform on which one of the boat's larger antiaircraft guns is mounted. Also noteworthy are the holes torn in the conning tower by shrapnel.
