Photo 009. The Bismarck in the Bay of Kiel.
The Bismarck in the Bay of Kiel

The Bismarck in the Bay of Kiel on 6 December 1940. After completing the preliminary trials in the Baltic, the Bismarck returned to Hamburg to finish her outfitting. This photo was subjected to censorship; note the missing FuMO 23 antenna on the 10.5-m rangefinder in the foretop. The entire forward 7-meter rangefinder is missing too, although not due to censorship, but because it was not installed until March 1941 at Kiel.
