Pictures from U-boats

The January 7 1925 edition of the Toronto Daily Star contained articles about an upcoming silent film commemorating the Zeebrugge raid of 1918.



It’s worth recalling that 1918 was as recent to the readers of this paper as 2013 is to us today!

Searches on YouTube for this film are a bit inconclusive, but I think you can see it in three parts: Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3.

The Zeebrugge raid didn’t work, by the way: the blockade ships were put in the wrong place, and the Germans were able to get their submarines through at high tide. Oh well.
