    I have never had a proper look around it, despite having been aboard on May 9th for the past three years. Been too busy talking with the Veterans.

    The thought of going to war at sea fills me with dread and I have the highest respect for the men that did.

    Cheers, Ade.

    It is a great little boat
    It used to be bigger but with the over development of the surrounding area and the buildings getting ever taller it now looks very small........

    There are certain parts of the ship that gave me a feeling of fear. Actually, as we were walking down the ramp I asked my English collector friend and co-photographer if he had noticed the sad looks on people's faces as they were leaving the ship? No he said. When we left, I realised that I had the same look on my face. It really made me think. Respect is a proper word for this. Never forget.

    Indeed. Exploring the deep bowels of a warship, one cannot help but imagining what it must have felt like in the hot, noisy pandemonium of a fierce battle, or worse yet, after an artillery- or torpedo hit, with lights going out and water breaking in... A feeling that is even more intense when moving through the claustrophobic, cramped confines of a submarine.

    Speaking of submarines, or German U-boots in general, moving through the U 995 always fills me with cold dread. An iron casket to be quite honest. I have the greatest respect for the men who served and who perhaps gave their lives that way, be it allies or enemies, they all died for the cause which was right to them at that time in history.

    I agree. I will never forget the feeling, when I was lucky enough to enjoy several tours of U-534. Incredible, I really have the utmost respect for all who were at sea during the period.

    Great photos Christina.
    I didnt get inside of the ship.
    I only stood on the other side of the river, next to the tower of london.
    The only photos i have from the HMS Belfast were taken from there.
    Thank you for showing the interior.

    Cheers
