    HMS Cumberland was Kent-class (first County-class) heavy cruiser, armed with 8x8" guns. Exeter was York-class heavy cruiser, armed with 6x8" guns. Exeter was few years newer and somewhat smaller than Cumberland.

    Well, if you simply display it as 'part of the Scharnhorst' rather than 'only Nazi Eagle left'...

    Is that also the problem with all aircraft on display in museums and what about those medals?
    (I've never noticed Nazi's by those...)
    Make it part of an exebition as part of not as the last Nazi Eagle like Ricky suggested!

    how the exibition has to be called is not my job, that's for somebody else :grin:
    anyway, the announcer in the news said it was the only eagle of the nazi's to be left, since all the others were blowen up by the allies

    Which was one of the Allies's better moves. But the eagle from ADMIRAL GRAFF SPEE should be in a museum, not sitting in some millionaire's mansion.
