    Following on from the Imperial and Kriegsmarine ribbons posted earlier, here are some of those from the Bundesmarine. Some of these ribbons are even rarer than the WW2 types.

    First, the Wilhelm Bauer, a recovered Type XXI wartime U-Boat which was modified and put back into service.

    The earlier ribbons were still made in the Gothic style as used in WW2.

    A variant of the first ribbon exists with the full wording Unterseeboot Wilhelm Bauer rather than just U-Boot. A variant of the second type exists with a dot between U and Boot rather than a hyphen thus U.Boot rather than U-Boot.

    Both types were made in either wire weave or cellulose thread weave.

    The gothic version is very rare as is the type with the dot between U and Boot.
