As an adjunct to Michel's thread on wartime signed photos, here is another similar theme. These cards were produced by the shipyards to honour commanders who had served on boats built by their firm.

This series was produced by Krupp-Germaniawerft and has the signature of the officer printed on it usually - but not always- in white.

These cards will all have the "Bildarchiv Krupp-Germaniawerft Kiel" logo at top left reverse and brief details of the individuals career at bottom left.

Another series exists with much greater detail on the reverse. Unfortunately there are no printer/copyright details on the reverse to indicate who produced them.

Here is one of Werner Kraus. This is the same photo that Kraus would send out postwar.
