Captured WW1 German submarine U86 on view to the public in Bristol harbour 1918. U86 under the command of then 27 year old Helmut Patzig was the highest scoring Uboat in North Channel during the closing year of WW1. However, her illegal action in torpedoing, sinking and then ramming/machine gunning the escape lifeboats a Canadian Hospital Ship, Llandovery Castle on 27 June 1918, killing 234 persons is said to have been the worst naval atrocity of that war.
