The wreck of the Graf Spee. After a very fierce engagement with H.M.S. Exeter, Ajax & Achilles. Graf Spee put into Montevideo Harbour where she scuttled herself thinking a large British Squadron was over the horizon waiting for her to come out. Although the British Ships were heavily outgunned they inflicted substantial damage on the Graf Spee.
