Hi
Reckon it could be wolf but I am not certain from which shipyard this boat is from. Trouble counting the flooding holes!

Hi Nobby, Not sure of this myself. The lower half looks like an early 400 boat but the wintergarden railings look like a 700 type. U 715 was the last to be commissioned with a single wintergarden so later boats are out of the frame.

It could be a 300-316 boat with damaged lower railings. It still looks like a wolf though-in a cooking pot of some kind.

regards M H.

Hi there,

the "Danzig" wolf is U 403.

For the other wolf "my" educated guess is U 274.

Best

Axel

Thanks Axel
There is no way that I will have access to this kind of information. Your library must be very large!
The "Sonntag" foto was amongst a group of foots of U 129 and crew all of them checked out except Sunday.
I must stop thinking of wolves now but we did beat the "foxes" yesterday.........................just
Rgds and again thanks

Hi,

Neptun Werft?.

Opening in the the deck for the snort, it looks like the snort is not finished yet.
U 930 was fitted with a snort in Lisahally.
The forward vents are, 6-14-3.
4 liferaft containers.
Underwater refuelling + atlantic bow.

My best guess..............U 930.

My best regards,

Ron.

Good pic Ron. As usual I do not know ,however in German archive there is no mention of 930 taking part in schnorkel excersies but it does for U 925 and U 927. H ave not seen a photo of a front of Rostock boat, very rare!

Hi there,

the pic of U 930 was already published some 45 years ago in the first edition of Eberhard Rösslers book on German U-boat yards in the section about Neptunwerft Rostock. The boat was fitted out completely including schnorkel.

Hi,

@ Nobby: The shape of the railing I marrked can be seen only on boats built by both Danziger shipyards.

Compare these two pictures and give me an answer:

Is the boat in the upper picture U 744 ?
