Very near the end of the war (but before the armistice was agreed upon) Germany delivered over 125 U-boats to one harbor in Britain. The High Seas Fleet, all of Germany’s naval fleet, some 70 ships including battleships, cruisers, destroyers and mine layers, were sailed into Skappa Flow, Britain’s main warship harbor in Scotland’s Orkney Islands. They remained manned by German skeleton crews until the terms of the armistice were worked out. Right before the armistice was signed and on a prearranged signal, the Germans scuttled all of the ships at anchor to prevent their distribution to France, Britain and the US after the war.
Scapa Flow is the correct spelling.
