  • Description

    Unused / unissued material - dates unclear or unknown.

    Various shots liner ship docking, presumably at British port.

    MS British survivor taken from Graf Spee before scuttling speaking into microphone. Snow if falling as he speaks. He says: Thank you to royal navy for bringing him back. He was treated well as POW (P.O.W. - Prisoner of War) aboard the Graf Spee and he wants to see family soonest. He also comments on allegations that they were gassed.

    (For Track see UN 174 C.)

    N.B. Paperwork suggests this is February 1940. The Graf Spee was scuttled of Uruguay after the Battle of the River Plate.
