USS Missouri transfers personnel to the USS Iowa in advance of the surrender ceremony planned for September 2nd 1945.

Did they transfer personnel across those ropes? I thought that was for goods/fuel only. That's mental lol.

The Tirpitz pictured in Kåfjord with the smokescreen seen drifting across the water


Interesting finding about how the chemical smokescreen used to protect the Tirpitz left a mark on the environment!

Silkkiuikku (Reddit): This field synagogue was used by the 24th jaegar regiment, which had many Finnish Jewish soldiers. Interestingly, the synagogue was situated only a few hundred meters from where German troops were stationed. Reportedly the Germans were curious about the synagogue, but acted politely.

350 Finnish Jews served in the Finnish army during the second world war. 25 of them died defending their country.

German sailors along with Japanese navy officers and cadets in Kobe, Japan, 1944.

The Germans belong to the Type IXC U-510 submarine which spent some time in the Japanese port of Kobe (7 July - 7 October 1944) during their 6th Combat Patrol (April 12 - December 3 1944)
