This rather faded photograph shows workmen breaking up a German submarine at Birling Gap, near Beachy Head.
It was sent to the now defunct Sussex County Magazine in 1929. She was one of the submarines, during the division of the spoils of war after the Armistice, which fell to France; while being towed to Cherburg the hawser snapped and she came ashore at the Seven Sisters. That was in March, 1919.
The sub was broken up by a firm of Welsh ironmasters for re-smelting.
A somewhat remarkable coincidence is that the submarine came ashore within a few yards of the Ushta, an Italian tramp boat, wrecked during the war.
The crew were all saved.
