Absolutely superb photo. My two favourite naval subjects in one photo, IJN and KM U-Boats. Great to see the Submarine School Graduation Badge being worn

Hello kunsho,

Hello Gordon,

the photo shows 3 crewmember of U 510, Cdr. Ritterkreuztr?ger Kapit?nleutnant Alfred Eick.

The photo was made 1944 in Kobe/Japan. The men on the left are the "Maschinenobergefreite Willi Zink", in the middle "Funkobergefreiter Martin Wagner" and on the right was the "Maschinenobergefreite Heinz Guyens".

Here are a monsunboat-foto from my collection. It shows another crewmember of U 510 with a rare "made in japan EK1"!

Hello Matthias,

yes you are right. Thank you for the big compliment "most expierienced monsun boat collector".

Hello Gordon,

nice photo! It shows on the left the chief engineer from U 532, Lieutenant Buggisch.

I have another photo from him in my collection, together with two sumo-wrestler in japan.

Here are the original japan made EK 1 from Lieutenant Buggisch, together with his uboat cap emblem from U 532. Last year I get this two rare pieces together with photos and documents directly from Mr. Buggisch.

Great photo ! I guess the U-Boat guys had to visit the Sumo Wrestlers and not the other way, I can't imagine these Sumo squeezing through the hatch into the U-Boat :cheeky:

Thanks for the ID on Buggisch, the Archiv identified the photo as from U-511.

Back to the begining of the post "Share yours! - U-Boat Badge Winners Photo Collection":

Here are one of the best photos in my collection. It shows a "Maschinenobermaat" from U 178 (yes, U 178 was also a monsun boat!) ;)

Back to the subject of the thread, U-Boat Badge Winners. The original print of this photo is so clear that it can be identified as an L/56 type F&BL badge being worn.

German Cross winner Hans Meier. The badge is amazingly clear on the original print, but is unfortunately a type which hasn't been attributed to a specific maker yet.

No U-Boat badge at this stage yet, but look what he does have :o

One of several who entered the U-Bootwaffe after service in naval aviation.
