U-505

Long classified SECRET, this photo shows the German submarine
U-505 being boarded after its capture on the high seas by
elements from a Naval Task force headed by the Escort Carrier
Guadalcanal, who later took the sub in tow to Bermuda where
she was hidden until the end of the war. The date is June 4,
1944, and Captain Dan Gallery is on board, checking for booby
traps (Acme News photograph).
