My pleasure. Here is another contribution. Kriegsmarinedienstelle Stettin tally. This is from a small photo lot of a reunion of WW1 ex-U-Boat crew. The ceremony was held aboard U-43. Cheers,

Such a book has been produced "DIE MÜTZENBÄNDER DER DEUTSCHEN MARINE / 1815-1918 / Königlich Preussische Marine - Norddeutsche Bundesmarine - Kaiserliche Marine", by Bernd Wedeking & Markus Bodeux

Dear Gents I want to refresh this thread posting my few KM pics with tallies on wear,may be any was is posted before but may be has gone when closed some platform to upload images Happy to s

Posted Images

I really like this photo.

The photo shows a member of the KM with a tally that reads ??flottille 12.

Thanks to the help of Markus B,he determined that it is probably a photo taken in the Winter of 1939-40 (notice the snow) and shows a group of men from the 12.U-Jagdtflottille 12.

In the Spring of 1940 all individual unit designated cap tallies were for forbidden in wear,i beleive?

In this photo we can see no WWII awards in wear.So,as Markus suggests the photo was possibly taken in the early months of WWII.

Regards,Martin.

Hello!

Schiffstammabteilung der ???

Best Regards,Morten.

Can you give a full image of this photo?

The pale blue stripe on the knot of the silk gives an indication about the Fleet (Nordsee or Ostsee); from left below to right above is Northsea, the opposite (from right below to left above) is Baltic Fleet.

Please note that the pale blue line on the knot of the silk denotes the Area of the wearer.

For the warer from right upper to left lower = Nordsee; from left upper to left lower = Baltic

HI larry,

my references show that there were 4 Torpedobootshalbflottille.

Is there any writing on the reverse of the photo that might indicate where the photo was taken ??

Regards,Martin.

When you look at the thin blue line on the silk knot you can deduct that this sailor belonged to the Marinestation der Nordsee (see my previous remarks about this matter).

The portrait dates pre 1930 (Latin script), and in that time the I. Torpedobootsflottille (comprising 1. & 2. Torpedobootshalbflottille) was stationed in the Ostsee.

Thus, this chap belonged to a TB of the II. Topedobootsflottille (comprising 3. & 4. Torpedobootshalbflottille).

An interesting photo of four sailors wearing the cap tally "Marine Nachrichenschule" in Fraktur script.

On the sailor's cap, the black/white/red national cockade, which was re-instated per Vfg.v. 14.3.1933 and 15.3.1933 (MV 33, Nr.65, 67) to replace the oval gilt cap badge with the black Weimar eagle.

But the German eagle on the breast and on the cap was not introduced until a year later, per Vfg. 24.3.1934.

In October 1929 replacement of Latin by Fraktur script cap tallies was ordered.The first ships to receive the new tallies in May 1930 were the Cruisers Karlsruhe and Köln, shortly before they went on an international journey. Later the other sailing and land based units followed.

Gunners o/b the cruiser Nürnberg (from:Jahrbuch der deutschen Kriegsmarine 1937).

Some time ago I bought this set of pictures offered on eBay. Unfortunately the vendor broke up a series and none was marked, thus not a clue about their context.

But in the end, the photo where the cap talies are visible give the clue, it is Otto Ciliax as a Kapitän zur See o/b the Panzerschiff Admiral Scheer somewhere between 1936 and 1938.

    • I've never smoked a single cigarette in my 62 years so I can't compare, but I can say that I like Lapsang Souchong tea, having tasted it the first time when I was 16, and a sea cadet. I'm not a Brit, though.
    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
