PHOTO 015. Bismarck in Hamburg.

Bismarck in Hamburg

Bismarck in Hamburg. A view towards Bismarck's forecastle from the foremast. For aerial recognition, swastikas were painted on the stern deck and foredeck, and dark grey was applied to the tops of the main and secondary batteries. The periscopes of the armoured command post can be clearly seen in this photo, too. This photo was taken in Hamburg, sometime in February 1941. Temperatures during this season of the year were below zero degrees Celsius and the waters of the Elbe were partially frozen.
