    Hi Colin,

    Its the Gneisenau.

    On first glance Scharmhorst and Gneisenau were near identical twins. Indeed when first built the spec of each ship was just about identical. However when they were rebuilt and got thier rakish "clipper" bows instead of the straight stem various changes were made.

    The most obvious tell-tale on photos is the position of the mainmast. On Gneisenau it remained attached to the rear of the funnel. On Scharnhorst it was moved further aft.

    Here is a snap of Gneisenau from a similar view to yours
