Description

Some of the crew of the British cruiser 'Vindictive' gathered round the shattered funnels of the vesel, Zeebrugge Raid, 1918. Britain believed that German submarines were attacking British vesels by operating from the ports of Ostend and Zeebrugge. In 1918, Rear-Admiral Roger Keyes decided to attack Ostend and Zeebrugge to block them and make them unstable for German submarines. However, this operation proved to be pointles because the Germans did not really use the two harbours. It was, however, one of the most daring operations of the Great War.
