U-Boat conning tower eagle

Post by William Kramer » 24 Sep 2012 17:02

Hello all,

I have this eagle here and have found several images online of it (or very similar patterns) in use. Present on VIIA, VIIB, IIA, IIB, IIC in photos below.

Does anyone else have any good photos or perhaps additional information for me?

Thanks in advance.

I did some research and this is what I came up with... The site I found them, can be seen on the photos... Really, a fantastic relic!
