It’s not often that something so close to the topic of Operation CRUSADER gets such recognition. SS Thistlegorm was sunk on 6 October 1941 while waiting to unload off Suez, with all her cargo from Britain. She is now a very famous diving wreck.
The absolutely fascinating set of pictures constructed of her has deservedly won a coveted price. It is a great read.
The unit that sank SS Thistlegorm was II./KG26, a specialised anti-shipping unit flying He 111 planes out of Greece and Crete known as the “Lion Wing”, das Löwengeschwader.
