Thank you. That is an unusual tunic. Are some of his buttons undone?

Here is a Reichsmarine photo showing Kreuzer Emden cap tally.

Hi,

Text translates as: Franz und Heinz/Heinz sails on the steamer in the background now for the last weeks.

Auf dem Dampfer im Hintergrund fährt Heinz jetzt die letzten Wochen.

 

There are till today a Scharnhorstbrücke in Kiel and Wilhelmshaven. By the looks of it, and because the Schiffsartillerieschule was in Kiel, I guess the photo was taken there. Actually, they both function more as a pier than a bridge.

Good evening Gentlemen,

having had a lot of fun watching you post cap tallies of the Kriegsmarine I have decided to join in, though my focus is on Imperial Forces / Navy.

Here are some from the Befehshaber der Sicherung der Nordsee.

As the unit and the boat might not generally be known here a few informations:

Built 1915 as trawler ESTEBURG for Pickenpack, taken over by Imperial Navy Dec. 1915. 13th January 1917: 4. Minenflottillle 12. Halbflottille. 16th June1919 back to owners. 1936 bought by Kriegsmarine. 14th March 1937 named SIGFRID. 3rd July 1937 Hilfsminensuchboot. 1st. April 1939 BSN Schulflottille (Befehlshaber der Sicherung der Nordsee). Survived war after short British ownership back into German hands as trawler broken up 1952.  (Gröner)

Hi there,

and here of the METEOR from my collection.

Hello!

My apologies if this is too off topic. But there were also civil cap tallies during that time, especially worn by the crews of the North German Lloyd and HAPAG, but also others. For example here some folks from the Hamburger Seebäder-Dienst, a line in connection with the HAPAG, that serviced some North-Sea Islands and harbour towns.

Hi, good evening!

As this thread is named Kriegsmarine Cap Tallies.... I have obstained from posting WW1 and prior Cap Tallies of the Kaiserliche Marine. Were it ok to do so, with regards to thread title? I´d have a couple of interesting ones, if interest is there.

Thanks,

GreyC

    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • 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 .
