Torpedoboot Wolf picture-postcard


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

While this is not an exotic item, I was quite happy when the picture-postcard from Wolf arrived by mail a few days ago. This is an early example with the letters 'WO' on the hull, later replaced by 'WL'. Yet, I have not been able to find the reason of this change? Why was this necessary?

Best,

Laurens

For service onboard these you were awarded the Destroyer Badge because at first the E-Boat did not yet exist. If you see pictures of guys like Klaus Feldt (Oakleaves) in E-Boats, he is wearing the first verson E-Boat Badge but also the Destroyer Badge. Very nice postcard.
