Share Your Favorite Naval Pictures and Videos!

I thought making a thread for sharing general naval pictures and videos would be fun for everyone so here it is! Post any cool/interesting images or video links and we'll see what kind of collection we can get started! I'll start it off with a couple of my favorite pictures and a cool video link at the end. I could stare at these for hours....

An Atlantic Convoy in 1942.



Another one of my favorites. A very bizarre picture opportunity. This is a German submarine's second torpedo wake heading for a crippled U.S. destroyer.



Here is the video link I mentioned above. This is amateur footage from an allied Atlantic convoy.



I am excited to see what will be posted here and look forward to some cool pictures and videos!

@ Steve

Do you have any good ones from your Navy days? Or was that before cameras were invented?

If there's one thing older than me, it's that joke. And it gets older every day.

U-123 which was a Drumbeat boat, shelling British freighter Culebra.





HMS Courageous damaged and sinking at the hands of U-29.



And to top it off, here's a video I enjoyed about German midget submarines.



By the way, nice pictures everyone!
