This photograph shows a ship's boat rescuing survivors from U-210 following the submarine's destruction.
Most of U-210's crew managed to escape from their sinking submarine, and the boat holds a number of them, identifiable by their inflatable life jackets. A sailor in the boat's bow (right) holds a boat hook, useful for pulling in survivors. HMCS Assiniboine and the British corvette HMS Dianthus, which had become separated during the battle, rescued 37 of the U-Boat's 43 crew members. The "X" above one of the survivors indicates a German submariner who had lived in Saskatchewan for 17 years.
