HMS Royal Oak – A Documentary Well Worth Your Time . . .

Very well done – From the site :

On the night of Friday 13th October 1939 German U Boat Commander Gunther Prien penetrated the British Navy’s main anchorage at Scapa Flow and sank HMS Royal Oak. 833 men lost their lives in one of the worst tragedies in British Naval history.
The wreck of HMS Royal Oak is a designated war grave and all diving is prohibited but a special permission was granted by the Ministry of Defence and the Royal Navy for the wreck to be filmed as a moving tribute to all those who lost their lives.
This video includes underwater images of the wreck which have never been seen before and there are interviews with survivors and Orcadian Sandy Robertson who was the first diver to go on the wreck the day after she sank . . .

Have Fun! – Run the Gun! – and remember – Fish Heads are Cheap!!
