Surrendered U-Boats at Lisahally, Northern Ireland
Following the German surrender, U-Boats in European waters were gathered at designated locations, including Lisahally, Londonderry's port.
This photograph, taken by William Prescott, a sailor aboard HMCS North Bay, shows four surrendered submarines tied up alongside a dock. The United Kingdom's westernmost port, Londonderry, was an important wartime naval base often used by Canadian ships. U-Boats gathered at Lisahally and at Loch Ryan, Scotland, were later taken to sea and scuttled as part of Operation ?Deadlight'.
