Two Canadians, one armed with a pistol, stand inside U-889's control room following the submarine's surrender in May 1945.
The control room was the submarine's nerve centre. The helmsman's controls can be seen on the right: a large compass mounted to the right of the watertight door, with the buttons to electrically control the U-Boat's rudder just visible below it. Directly above the compass is an engine room telegraph for controlling the speed of the submarine's diesel engines. Part of the commanding officer's quarters are visible through the watertight door (centre).
