German UC5 Mine-Laying Submarine Captured Apr 1916 Old Postcard Marine Navy Flag

Vintage Old Naval Postcard. Military Vessel. Submarine. Marine, Navy. Flag. The UC5 Mine-Laying is practically a new Submarine. It was captured somewhere on the East Coast in April (1916). It is believed that she made 20 trips across the North Sea and laid about 240 mines. On her last voyage she had just laid 2 when a British Destroyer captured her. To prevent damage being done by the 2 mines a plucky torpedo lieutenant attired in a diver's suit made the mines safe by detaching the detonators.
