Caption: Captured German U-boat. This is the SM UC-5 minelayer submarine, operated by the German Imperial Navy during the First World War (1914-1918). A small U-boat with a crew of 14, it operated in coastal waters such as the English Channel. Its mines (two visible here) sank 29 ships. It ran aground on 27 April 1916 near Harwich, to where it was towed after being captured by the Royal Navy (British and German flags present). Here, it is at Sheerness. It was later moored at Temple Pier on the Thames, London, and displayed in Central Park, New York, USA. Photograph from the Bain News Service, one of the USA's earliest news picture libraries.
