MHM September Caption Competition – Winners Announced!

1 min read

We asked you to think of something appropriately witty for this image from our feature on WWI submarine warfare, published in the September issue of Military History Matters. Here are the winners!


“The men who stayed up top hadn’t quite grasped the fundamental concept of the submarine.” — Bruce Arthurs


“Just fire a friendly shot across starboard to say hello…” — Ken Rutherford

“Subterfuge causes that sinking feeling!” — Rev Kenneth Pilgrim


  1. Against all odds, a defiant German submariner called “Scarface” cries out, “Say hello to my little friend.”

  2. ‘I said fire a few rounds across her bows, not sink the bloody ship!’ – in best Michael Caine accent..

  3. U-Boat Captain Meyer of U-333 (standing, right, looking at his watch) sheepishly suddenly realizes that since they had crossed the date-line, Armistice Day was yesterday and not today.
