The Vasa sinks

Active selection in cart:
With her pennons streaming out in the gentle Summer breeze, Sweden's latest showpiece, the Vasa, was towed from her berth into the centre of the harbour – where she promptly sank. Inset shows Gustavus Adolphus, King of Sweden, who badly needed the Vasa to help keep his enemies at bay. Original artwork for illustrations on pp10–11 of L&L issue no. 693 (26 April 1975).
