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.

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!) ;)

    • 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.
