The story behind the painting...


The Seehund (Seal) was the most successful of the various German midget submarines produced in WW2. With a length of 39 feet and weighing 15 tons, the craft was powered by a 60hp diesel and a single 25hp electric motor giving it a top speed of 6 knots. With a two-man crew and carrying two underslung 21-inch torpedoes, the highly manoeuvrable and virtually undetectable Seehund was used effectively towards the end of the war, sinking over 120,000 tons of Allied shipping. 

At the very end, these midget submarines were employed as 'butter boats', replenishing the dwindling supplies of isolated German coastal garrisons.
