HMS Cardiff leads the German Highseas Fleet escorted by the British Grand fleet into the Firth of Forth and internment. The German ships were later escorted to Scapa Flow where their crews eventually scuttled them. Although most were later salvaged some are still there.

I like the contrasting brown smoke /blue sky.Must have been quite an event to witness . Shame they were bad losers though I suspect other sailors appreciate their sentiments and loyalty . Wonder what we'd have done with them ?

That steel from those ships has an almost *0* radiation count as it went to the bottom before all the nuclear weapon tests, it is used for some very dedicated medical and space tech

It is probably the most sought after extremely high grade steel in the world

Some of it is on it's way to the stars .... it was used in parts of the Voyager space craft :cool:
