I am enquiring about the attached photo I obtained from a street market about 25 years ago (and the label on the bottom left).
I know about the sinking in a storm in the Atlantic Ocean and loss of life of many German Navy Cadets on board the Pamir in 1978. My question regards why this large print exists and who may have been the recipient.
It is a large and fairly old image, measuring about 14” x 20”. The label – clearly of some age – states “With compliments and thanks of The News Chronicle”. I obtained this print because I was on her sister ship the Peking (Arethusa TS at the time), which is now back in Germany being rebuilt.
