Prinz Eugen, by chance I got these this morning. The officer is Kaptain Zur Zee is Hans-Erich Voss who was her Captain from October 42- Feb. 1943. Voss ended the war as a Vice-Admiral, he was in the conference room on 20th July 44 and was awarded the July 44 wound badge in Gold, he was in the bunker in April 45 and was a friend of the Goebbels family. He was imprisoned by the Russians for being a member of Hitler's aggressive war administration ( pushing it a bit for an excuse IMO) he was released in 1952 and passed away in 1969. Prinz Eugen was seriously damaged by RAF bombs in Brest - her control centre was destroyed and 60 of her crew were killed.( July 1941). She was undamaged in Cerberus and was sent to Norway, she was torpedoed by an RN submarine and her stern was blown off, repaired on-site sufficient for her to make it back to Germany for repairs, she remained in Baltic waters for the rest of the war supporting German withdrawals in late 1944/45. She surrendered to the British in Copenhagen and allocated the USN by drawing straws, she went "State side" and from Boston, she went via the Panama canal to Bikini Atoll where she was issued in nuclear testing. She capsized after being beached, one of her propellors was returned to laboe in the late 1970s. The second photo shows her in her "Baltic stripes", circa April/ May 1941. Kapt. zur Zee Voss.
