  1. Hi gents, i am not a collector of KM cap tallies but i am a collector of KM photographs,especially images that show awards in wear. I also like to collect images of the various KM cap tallies in wear,besides the standard wartime issue "Kriegsmarime" tally. I like to look for the Zerstorer tallies. I beleive that many of the "named" ship tallies are pre-WWII but correct me if i am wrong here. This is my latest addition that shows a crewman from the Zerstorer Friedrich Ihn. Please show any images you have of rare or "unusual" tallies in wear. Regards,Martin.
  2. Please post your unknown Second World War Kriegsmarine Signatures here.
  3. On the shoulder straps of the KM field grey uniform, only a limited number of destinctive devices were worn. Most seen are the crossed anchors (with and without Latin letters/numbers or Arab numbers above), the winged shell on an anchor or the crossed lightning flashes with a 'schwinge' on an anchor. This Unteroffizier however, is wearing the steering wheel in metal, as for Transportation Units, an intersting variation
  4. Here is a small part of my collection which has to do with the German u-boot U-95, which was sunk on the 28th of November 1941 after being torpedoed by the dutch submarine O-21. There were only twelve survivors. U-95 was under the command of KapitänLeutnant Gerd Schreiber, while the O-21 was commanded by Luitenant 1st klasse Johannes van Dulm. Most of the stuff has to do with obersteuermann Martin Bitterberg, who was also third watch officer on U-95. Hope you guys enjoy. First some photographs of Martin Bitterberg.
  5. Just picked up this nice Torpedo Mechanic patch in wear portrait. Cheers, Larry
  6. Hello together, today I will show you a very rare U-boat divingsuit from my collection. It was only used from U-boat crews. Every german U-boat had one divingsuit on board. Please note the marking "Kleintauchgerät" on the Tauchretter. This marking was the only different to the normal U-boat Tauchretter. The Tauchretter was made for rescue from a sunken U-boat, the divingsuit was made for repair outside the U-boat.
  7. Vizeadmiral Otto Ciliax Born: 30th Oct 1891 Died: 12th Dec 1964 Highest rank reached: Admiral Kdr Schlachtschiff 'Scharnhorst' Befehlshaber der Schlachtschiffe Oberbefehlshaber des Marineoberkommandos Norwegen Ritterkreuz - 21st Mar 1942 DKiG - 20th Nov 1941 Image: HSF citation
  8. To compliment the outstanding Kriegsmarine Cap Tallies thread here is an index to help people look for any examples that have already been posted. Just because an example has been posted please do not stop posting any similar examples of a cap tally in wear as the index can be updated as and when required to include it. There does seem to be a formatting issue when having to inset new entries in-between existing ones which leaves a bigger than normal space between the entries. If anyone knows how to overcome this without it breaking the links your help would be appreciated.

  9. here are some KM plaques from my collection. First up is a U-373 shield very similar to the one pictured on page 363 of "Torpedo los!" Interesting that the black cat logo is at the bottom, but 373 was attached to the 3rd flotilla, whose logo was the turtle. The lion shield on the top left is correct for the boat.
  10. Gentlemen, does anyone have a better picture of Weber? Looking at the ribbon bar, is that the Sudetenlandmedaille to the right? What about the rest? Did he maybe have the EK II (1939) or the KVK? Hard to identify with this picture, I know. Thank you!
  11. Hi, I'm helping a fellow collector to obtain as much information as poissible about this Kaiserlich Marine and Kriegsmarine Officer. Pictures or signed documments are mostly welcomed, but any kind of informations is also wanted (rank lists, awards, etc.) For now, all he has about this guy is the following: Thanks in advance! Douglas.

  14. Hello , I would like your help in identifying this hand held flashlight / beacon lamp . I was told that this was a very late war Luftwaffe or Kleinkampfverbande light beacon . This is made from sheet steel and has a brittle plastic dome cover on the top . It is water proof and due to it's long length and the battery in the lower half this will float in an up right position . I do not see any markings on this lamp . The battery does have a paper label and is all in german . This is very old and the battery was made for this lamp . My question is , has anyone ever seen one of these and it is 100% German but is it Pre 1945 or post war ? Best Regards, Joe
  15. Greetings, I would like to post my collection of Naval Tallies. If I can provide better photos or if you would like me to photograph any one specific, just let me know. Regards, 2dresq
  16. Hello Gentleman A pics of my NARVIK shild and urkunde. Nesredep
  17. :D To share with all of you, here pics from an uncommon West Werftleistungsabzeichen award document, it's the first time that i see this model. Kirchhoff Hermann Regards Ben
  18. This beauty I believe was used for the timing of torpedoes from launch to impact (or not), but it could perhaps be one used for navigation....or maybe both. It is still functional. The reverse of this chronometer/stopwatch is KM-marked and is also stamped "65 G" (presumably some kind of serial number). The interior works are stamped "Junghans" within an eight-pointed star; the numerals "68" underneath and a production serial number "48683". The white face is marked with the maker's name and two sets of numerals around the perimeter: red numerals in descending order ("EU=2hm" - whatever that means); and black numerals in ascending order measuring seconds. There is also a small timer in the upper portion of the face which measures the minutes elapsed. Interesting to note is that two marks have been hand-inked onto the face of this smaller minute timer at the 5 and 10 minute points. There are small, round, slightly-raised yellowish dots located under each of the large black numerals which I assume to have been "glow-in-the-dark" material (which no longer glows). Interesting, as well, is the unique, functional, protective wooden case (also stamped with the serial number "65 G") which houses this chronometer/stopwatch...probably the reason why it is still fully-functional. The heavy-duty cord fitted into the wooden case would be used to wear the stopwatch around the neck in the close quarters of the U-Boat and prevent damage from banging against the metal of the periscope or other objects. I am hoping to get some feedback on this KM-U-Boot item, especially the purpose of the red numerals, please. Thanks, and enjoy viewing this item. John
  19. Hello Gentlemen, I´m surching a crewlist of the Kreuzer Admiral Graf Spee at the time at Montevideo or someone who please could check a name for me if he returnd to Germany during WW 2. The person I,m surching is Steinhoff. I know that there exist a list with this names but I have no access. Thanks Andreas
  20. 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
  21. Besides collecting HSK awards i do collect photographs of KM awards in wear.This one is a new arrival and has become my favorite portrait.A great studio shot of Ernst Schwabe who was a crewman on the HSK "Stier". Just a great portrait,IMO,and yes,he is wearing the HSK award. So,please show your favorite portraits that show KM awards in wear. Regards,Martin.
  22. Hello Gents Does anyone identify this KzS proudly wearing his Turkish War Medal? The series of this ceremony is found from different sources and on one of the photos back it says Grossadmiral Dönitz. And it is claimed to be taken on the day Prinz Eugen was launched in 22 Aug 1938. Please do share your views. Tan
  23. I have had this U-170 grouping for several years now, but just purchased two photos of the owner recently. The grouping was to Willy Prediger, a Maschinenmaaten on the boat. The soldbuch has all of Prediger's awards entered, including the U-Boots-Frontspange in Silber. First, here are the photos recently purchased on eBay. I discovered that these photos were tied to Prediger about three hours before the auction closed, so was very lucky to get them.
