Entrance to U-Boat pens at Brest
Here we see the entrances to five of the heavily protected U-boat pens at Brest, after the port was surrendered to the Allies on 18 September 1944. Despite repeated bombing raids, which eventually saw the concrete roofs penetrated by Tallboy bombs dropped by No.617 Squadron, the U-boat pens remained in use into September 1944.
