Atlantic Ocean Date:1917, May Duration:7 min 26 sec Sound:NO SOUND
View from the surfaced German U-Boat, UB-35, on a scenic cruise along the British coast in World War 1. The U-Boat crew uses explosives to sink a ship, close to shore (after releasing the ship's crew). The ship was loaded with salt herring for transport to Genoa, Italy. Repeated explosions are seen. In change of scene, five prisoners of war (British ship captains) take a morning walk on the deck of the UB-35 behind a screen of tarpaulin stretched across the deck. A slate referring to the difficulties experienced by Britain from German U-Boats. The U-35 Captain, Lothar von Arnauld de la Periere, is seen sitting in his conning tower. Other officers are keeping watch. He receives a message from a sailor below. He writes a note to Headquarters reporting on ships and tonnage sunk by the U-35, and mentioning 5 English ship's captains taken prisoner, in the month of May, 1917. He signs it: "U-35, Arnauld." Closeup of the note. The U-35 proceeds to rendezvous with the Austro-Hungarian Novara-class scout cruiser, "Helgoland." View of the 4-stacker Helgoland with black smoke issuing from her stacks. View from the U-35 as it passes to port of the Helgoland. Captain von Arnauld and another officer, greet an Austro-Hungarian navy officer who comes aboard bringing greetings and wishes for good luck from his Admiral, to the U-35. View of the Admiral's flagship,the Austro-Hungarian Armored Cruiser, S.M.S. Sankt Georg. (Slate reads three cheers for the returning U-Boat, so presumably the Sankt Georg crew gives cheers.) Camera pans across the cruiser to deck of the U-35, where officers and men of the U-35 salute and raise their hats in three cheers for their Austrian-Hungarian comrades. Flags fly from the U-35, one for each Allied ship sunk. The U-35 with crew on deck moves slowly into port next to another submarine and large ship. U-Boat Captain von Arnauld walks to a fleet message center. The U-35 crew happily receive and read letters from home. The next scene shows the U-35 heading out to sea again,
