Description

Bandah Shapur, Iran. c.1941-09. Salvage of the German ship Hohenfels, showing a similar pump rigged between decks after a certain head of water had been pumped out. A lead through the hole cut in the water-tight bulkhead to the engine-room, can be seen. This was part of an operation by Force B, in which HMS Kanimbla took part, manned by RAN personnel. (Donor W.
