His caption hand-written caption reads: "U-805: The U-805, first submarine to surrender, is escorted by ARGO at 12 knots for the last 50 miles to Portsmouth, N.H. Ten prisoners were stowed in the forward anchor chain locker, 230 aft over the screws, with 5 officers below decks, all under heavy guard. Modern conveniences at their disposal consisted solely of a 10 quart pail. Shower baths with smelling salts and sandwiches were omitted." Courtesy of the Winslow family.
