  • Marine-HJ Ausbildungslager, [Naval HJ training camp] at the Wörther See (in Kärnten, Austria);
  • Reichsseesportschule I, named “Gorch Fock”, at Prieros South-East of berlin in Gebiet 2 (Mark Brandenburg);
  • Reichsseesportschule II, at Seemos, near Friedrichshafen on the Bodensee at the Ferman-Austrian border, in the Gebiet 21 (Baden);
  • Reichsseesportschule III, named “Admiral von Trotha”, tatZiegenort (Kreis Uckermünde) at the Stettiner Haf, in the Gebiet 5 (Pommern);

Recently I added this very rare and interesting press photo to my collection, showing men of the Donauflottille [Danube Flottilla].

The tally was worn between October 1938 and September 1939 by men dressed as sailors, assigned to the Danube Flottilla.

This flottilla served earlier as a part of the Austrian K.u.K. Kriegsmarine [imperial and Royal Navy] with small craft on the river. After 1919 the flottilla was disbanded, as ordered by the vicors of the Great War. In November 1938, after the amalgamation of Austria and Germany to the greater Germany, the flottilla was re-established as an unit of the Kriesmarine and commanded by a Kapitän zur See, the HQ was seated in Linz.

The unit was subordinate to the Stationskommando Ostsee [station Commander Baltic].

This cap tally was replaced by the general tally "Kriegsmarine" in September 1939.

i think you're right, Salzwedel.

I have one also, though more in close-up, and the "F" is right above the nose, on other Unterseebootsflottille tallies, the "F" is more to the left or to the right (depending on the total lenght of the tekst).

Also, the first Capital of the last word looks like a "S".

This is the first photo i have picked up in quite a while.

I think from one of the Torpedobootshalbflottille.

The studio stamp on the reverse is from Ostswine,so maybe he was from the 1st or 2nd Flottille based in Swinemunde ?

Regards,Martin.

Thanks Morten,

This topic started as one for Kriegsmarine tallies, but as it is it's camel nosing into a general German tally thing.

The tallies for ships are easy to define, because the ships' data are easy to find. But there are many more tallies of (land or sea based) units or shore establishments, and some of these were shortly functional.

These are very interesting, also because there is (to my knowledge) no complete catalogue of Kriegsmarine cap tallies. Against that back ground, photos showing the tallies of units are most interesting as evidence.

The tally "Linienschiff Hessen", shortly before the ship was finally decomissioned (photo dated 11.4.1933).

The (Weimar) oval eagle cockarde has been replaced by the black-white-red cockarde, but the national emblem eagle appeared a year later.

    • 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.
