While I just lost the bid on ebay for the photo, I am glad I have a copy to go with the cap tally that I do own. Very rare tally and equally rare photo. Worn prior to the complete absorption of the Naval Air arm of the Kriegsmarine into the Luftwaffe. The book "Operation Drumbeat" relating to U-123 talks in great detail about the days of the independent naval air arm. Many of those pilots went into U-boat service when the change was ordered. John
