Flanked by U.S. escorts, surrendered German submarine U-234 arrives at dock in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

German submarine U-234, after her surrender and capture by the U.S. Forces in Portsmouth, New Hampshire at the conclusion of World War 2 in Europe. U-234 underway on the surface with YT (tugboats) alongside. Portsmouth Lighthouse in the background. The submarine surfaces and is flanked by the tugboats. The submarine crew members stand on a dock while American sailors guard them with rifles. German Major General Ulrich Kessler and other officers exit a U.S. Coast Guard cutter via a gangway. The officers walk along the dock at Portsmouth. German prisoners walk along the dock. The prisoners carry their gear as they come onto the dock. U-234 had been carrying advanced weapon systems and uranium, and had been bound for Japan. It is a shame that the captured U-Boat U-234 was eventually sunk in 1947 while being used for 'target practice' by the US military. The history of this U-Boat and it's involvement with US service personnel during the later stages of WW2 should surely have meant that this boat should have been preserved for posterity. This was a very exspensive, fully working U-Boat of tremendous historical value. To simply sink it as a target is a travesty... the word philistines seems appropiate here. Just think of the educational value this boat could have provided as a working museum for future generations to visit and ponder over. What a waste.
