This photograph depicts the German Navy’s WW II Panzerschiffe the Admiral Graf Spee.  The three ships of this class were popularly referred to as “Pocket Battleships.”  Actually, they were the equivalent of armoured cruisers of an exceptionally powerful type, as they carried six – 11 inch main guns.  This photograph is undated but it is believed to have been taken in 1938 at an unknown location.  The ship was scuttled in the waters of the River Plate, on 17 December 1939, to avoid further action with the Royal Navy laying in wait off the coast of South America.  This photograph is from the INRO Archives.
