    The Photos of the Graf Spee burning were taken when Langsdorff, her Commander set her on fire and sank her after she had to leave the Harbour.
    As far as I know, no German Sailor was Buried at sea, I have seen several photos of the Flag Covered bodies still aboard ship when she arrived at the harbor after the Battle.
