Operation "Cerberus" (11-13 February 1942)
The Gneisenau during Operation "Cerberus", the so-called "Channel Dash".
Another view of the Gneisenau during Operation "Cerberus". A photograph taken from Prinz Eugen showing Scharnhorst in the lead and in her wake the Gneisenau.
To the far right of this photograph the destroyer Richard Beitzen can be seen. In the wake of the destroyer the Scharnhorst followed by the Gneisenau. The smaller vessels in the photograph helps protecting the large units.
Back in Germany the Gneisenau enters the Brunsbüttel sluice as seen in the photograph. The Gneisenau was anchored in Brunsbüttel. Here the crew were mustered to listen to their commander.
