Sharkhunters Member GERHARD RICHTER (214-1986) was a radioman on U-81 when they sank the British aircraft carrier HMS ARK ROYAL in the western Mediterranean and on this 80 minute-long DVD, he tells about it in great detail. Did any Italian submarines assist? How did they set up their attack on the task force? How many men were lost on ARK ROYAL? Did the destroyers come after them? It’s all on this DVD. You’ll love it.
This is pure history from a man who was at the center of this event. He also tells about the time he set up the radio station at U-boat Headquarters at Kerneval outside Lorient. Who took over his room? You will be surprised at the answer.
He later was posted to the K-Verband and was ‘Skipper’ of his own one-man U-Boat.
