Hi Fernando,

Seeberufsfachschulen (SBFs) were successor-institutions of the Unteroffizierfachschulen that were founded in 1941 for all service brnches in the German Wehrmacht and discontinued already in 1942. However the Kriegsmarine reorganized them into SBFs. One of the at least 12 in existence was in Essen (Ruhr). Just found out that the personnel might have been under the supervision of the Reichsministerium für Wissenschaft, Erziehung und Volksbildung, a civilian ministry for education. They at least kept personnel files in their department.

Hey everyone!

First of all, thanks for an informative thread. My father and I were going through some old family photo's and came across one of my great grandfather in his uniform, and because both of us are interested in military history we were trying to work out more about my great grandfathers service, specifically what was written on the tally. After a bit of google searching I came across this website and noticed not much information on this particular uniform. Any and all information that you can gleam from this picture would be appreciated as we wish to learn more about our ancestry. 

Thanks for your time!

Josh.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
