It is a pity that his arm is blocking the view of the badge on his tunic.

Writing on the back of the photo shows that it was developed by a Photo-Haus in Westerland-Sylt.

This was an island fortress and as far as I know there wasn't a naval presence there.

Photo taken while on leave perhaps?

Here is the back of the photo.

Cheers,

Larry

That is a great photo. Thanks for showing it here. I really like photos showing KM trade and specialty patches in wear.

Maybe a thread should be started showing the different types being worn.

Cheers,

Larry

I have changed the thread title to promote this idea. It will be interesting to see the various examples.

I have this one in a Soldbuch showing a sailor on the Tirpitz.

And this one showing a sailor from 5.Raumbootsflottille.

Hi Morten, your photo was made in Breda, in Holland.

In the Chassé Army Barracks, the 14th Schiffsstammabteilung (note the banner on the trumpet!) was housed until 1944. This photo is one of a series which was permanent for sale in the canteen-shop, and these are frequently found in albums and boxes of German sailors and staff who were stationed in Breda.

Here are two more from the same series.

    • 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.
