Life Size German Second World War U-boat To Come To Earls Court

life size submarine earls courtThe British Military Tournament’s  re-enactment of a mission undertaken by three Navy sailors will see a life-sized replica of a German Second World War U-boat emerge from the floor at the Earl’s Court Exhibition Centre.

The re-enactment is of a mission undertaken by three Navy sailors who swam aboard U559 in 1942 to search for documents as the vessel foundered in the Mediterranean.

When the vessel sank only one of the sailors survived but that sailor manages to recover books that led code-breakers to crack the Nazi’s Enigma code.
