Kriegsmarine NCO, wearing the white summer jacket.

On the wall the crest of the 3. SPERRBRECHERFLOTTILLE.

The flottilla was active in the seas between Denmark, Sweden and Norway.

Interesting the Zulu flag. Of course this photo was post war colorized I presume. Wonder why that particular signal flag was chosen? Great photo though. Thanks for posting.

Greetings, So to finish with my Wappen, I have the Unterseebootsbeglietschiff Saar, the Bremse, the Jaguar, the Admiral Graf Spee, and the Schlachtschiff Scharnhorst.

The Wappen have become sort of my auxillary focus apart from the naval muetzenband of the Kriegsmarine. If anyone cares to liquidate or sell, I am in the market. :beer:

Thanks for looking.

Regards,

JustinG

Hello Justin.

A very pretty heraldry.

A reminder to our readers:

the "Prinz Eugen " was known as the " glueckhafte Schiff"' or the lucky ship. Came through all engagements until sunk at the nuclear trials post WW ii.

Thanks for showing us.

Surviving the Bismarck's only voyage and the attack from the HMS Hood and Prince of Wales.

She was a lucky ship but she was also a troubled ship.  Crashing into the Kreuzer Leipzig and having it's stern blasted off by the HMS Trident's torpedo.  It also participated among the ships of Operation Cerberus. 

Would love to see the official report from the Leipzig and the Eugen captains explaining the actions that took place during this collision. 

Regards,
JustinG

Can't figure out why these are sideways.
