So it is the similar formation of the crew that tells you it is U 175 rather that any particular detail of the boat?

Hi
See above, I have the image in my collection from the archives! 604 was type VIIc! Looked through my collection of type IXC commissioned at Weser Bremen and bingo! U175!
There are a lot of images marked as "vermutlich" (probably) U 604 but they are not necessarily so!
