Notes
Content: Long-range German reconnaissance aircraft flew over British naval bases such as this one north of Scotland to locate the enemy's ships when they weren't at sea. This photo may be meant to show how the British fleet temporarily fled the protection of Scapa Flow after the battleship "Royal Oak" was sunk by submarine U-47 in October 1939.
