Further Information: The caption says that the ships are the "Intrepid" & "Iphigénie" sunk to prevent German use of Zeebrugge post in World War 1. This is not correct. The Intrepid, the Iphigénie & the Thetis were all supposed to scuttled in the harbour entrance. The Thetis never made it to the harbour entrance, and the other two were scuttled but did not completely block the harbour. Read all about the Zeebrugge Raid
