Kriegsmarine tile depicting the 9. U-bootflottille fish

Recommended Posts

Recently stumbled upon a ceramic tile on Ebay.com depicting the laughing (I prefer smiling!) swordfish of the 9. U-bootflottille. It reads:

                   "Zum geburstag MaschOGfr Egon Tschierschke Kommando U-256 Brest, den 20. Februar 1944."

"Owing to the birthday of Maschinobergefreiter (machinist) Egon Tschierschke, U-256 Command, Brest,  February 20. 1944."

The seller stated that it came from the collection of this Egon. Now, I have no particular boner for swastika's but that swordfish looks kinda hot to me. 

If you're about selling anything of your 9th flotilla stuff, please do email me first.

Why is this posted here? Shouldn't it be posted on one of the Third Reich forums?
