I first saw this photo back in the 80's when i was collecting one of those weekly issue books. Its stuck in my head ever since. My guess is its from a training exercise rather than actual combat.

HMS Antelope, after fending off an attack from Argentinian fighters an attempt was made to remove an unexploded bomb from its hull. It went wrong and the ships magazine went up.

Funny, ive seen that one around for decades and assumed it was the real deal, the colour composition is similar to the published photos from Signal and other German magazines of the 1940 period.

What do you suspect is incorrect about it?

The second one is certainly real, its part of a group of SS Grenadiers from Kampfgruppe Hansen in the Ardennes/Alsace-Lorraine offensive of 1944. They'd just captured (and loted) a US patrol and in turn got ambushed by a German propoganda photographer who had them running up and down making 'action' shots when it all went quiet.
Its one of the iconic photos of the period. Theres quite a bit of interest in certain circles in finding out who this guy is.
