  3. Hello Nesredep, please look here : http://www.leuchtpistolen.de/Waffenliterat...enliteratur.htm Band 1 - bis 1945 Band 2 - after the war and the "Leinenwurfpistolen" (also the KM ones) Regards, Monsun
  4. Hello, thank you for the friendly comments, the pistol is really in an great unused condition. Hi Joe, I will try to explain the function of this gun with my little english. It was a single shot pistol. At first you must put a 8 mm blank cartridge from the rear in the chamber. Then you can put the 22 mm (diameter) rocket from the front in the barrel and screw the steel mount with the steel sling/rope in the rocket. After that you can fire the line throwing gun. Here are a page from the very good "Leuchtpistolen" book from Mr. Wolfgang Kern. You can see both cartridges for the gun, the small 8 mm blank cartridge and the large 22 mm rocket. The small 8mm blank cartridge is only the primer for the large rocket. Regards, Monsun
  5. Hello Nesredep, mmh, is this now a photo for your "Narvik" or "Dienstabzeichen" posting? - U 9, black sea, Konstanza 1943, in the middle you can see the Flottilla-cdr. Rosenbaum. Regards, Monsun

  8. Hi Gordon, you are right, thats really the rarest u-boat commander cap, worn here from Kapit?nleutnant Wilhelm Dommes at his time as commander of U 431 (29.U-Flottille, La Spezia & Toulon). And you now, he was later second commander of my favorite u-boat U 178 and CIS! Regards, Monsun

  11. and here is an original photo from such a rope pistol, taken on board of U 178 (my favorite u-boat ) in the year 1943. Bootsmannsmaat Max Dittrich (DKiG) firing an rope to an italian u-boat.
  12. Hello, also a new addition to my u-boat collection, a very rare line throwing gun, in german called "Leinenpistole, System Sander". Complete with the also rare linen cover (inside stamped the year "1940") and an steel mount. This rocket pistol was used on german ships or u-boats for firing ropes with a rocket to another ship or boat. On the rocket was a steel mount and on this mont was a rope attached. This gun comes from the german u-boat bunker "ELBE II"! Look at the card with "ELBE II, "Leinenpistole" (handwriten) and "Ausgabe an U-...." (given to u-boat nr...). Regards, Monsun
