Title

Tirpitz and armoured vehicles

Description

Two reconnaissance photographs. The first is low level of the Tirpitz moored stern on to the land. Jetty connects stern to land. Several other jetties are present and various smaller boats are moored or moving. Booms are seen above Tirpitz. Several platforms or barges are attached to Tirpitz and the water around the ship is discoloured by oil slicks.
The second is a low level photograph of fields with a rural road and scattered trees running left to right and another smaller road running centre left to top right. The fields are covered in vehicle tracks and at least 20 tracked vehicles are seen spread over the entire area together with a group of smaller vehicles to top right.. The area also shows scattered craters from explosions throughout.
There appears no connection between these two photographs.
