Gert Normann Andersen showed Stefan Huck from the German Marine Museum and myself around the new Memorial Park which is in final stages of preparation for the opening on June 1st. I will be there with Reinhard Scheer’s adopted great grandson, Reinhard Scheer-Hennings. Stefan and I were passing through quickly to loan Gert a beautiful model of Hipper’s flagship, SMS L├╝tzow. We returned with the model of HMS Iron Duke and some paintings which will go now to the NMRN in Portsmouth. It’s been a pleasure to have see Iron Duke so beautifully displayed in Gert’s museum but sad we could not stay longer.
