Incredible pictures showing the capture of a famous German U-boat during World War II will go on auction in the U.K. this weekend.
The pictures are part of an extensive archive of artifacts that belonged to Royal Air Force Officer Group Captain Montague Whittle, who commanded the RAF station in Iceland during World War II.
“It’s an incredible archive of material,” explained Henry Aldridge & Son auctioneer Andrew Aldridge, in an email to Fox News. “Coming from a RAF officer of this importance takes it to another level completely.”
The incredible aerial photos show the capture of submarine U-570 by British forces in August 1941. The U-Boat’s crew, who were on their first patrol, raised the white flag after the sub was damaged by depth charges dropped from a British bomber on Aug. 27, 1941.
