Hi, You should be wary of the colours stated on some sites for emblems. U 662 is portrayed as a grey elephant-the crew say it is a red one.
U 701 is stated as a black whale-the crew say its a red gurnard.
The 11th flottilla background is portrayed as red-Uboat in focus show it as light blue.
regards MH.

Ok! U-historia has many good coloured ones but as to accuracy, who knows!

Hi The emblem on this boat is based on human crab lice. If you follow the railing level with the deck gun you see the end top section has been modified and cut back. The first series 551 - 650 boat to have this was U 571.The lower bar on this was not bent. U 596 is the first confirmed boat I am aware of to have a bend in this bar. All boats after U 601 had a bent lower bar.

Reason: U-34 is definitively not correct! Only U 34 [WITHOUT HYPHEN] is o.k. in the authoritative german terminology [for all their subs likewise]
