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.

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.

    • 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
