September 15, 1915: Survivors from SMS U-6 being picked up by HMS E-16. After torpedoing and sinking the U-boat, Lt. Commander Talbot and his crew picked up the five survivors at the risk of their own boat. These photos show the German sailors being removed from the North Sea. Some of these photos were used later in the press to show British compassion towards the enemy.
