Hello to all :D; thanks for your help, fully appreciated. So far (and from various sources) what I have is a type VIIC with FuMO 29 antenna and the port is St. Nazaire. Cheers. Raul M 8-).

Only patrolled from Brest. I think it is St Nazaire? Which other type VII had 38g?

Hello

It is Saint-Nazaire (confer joined photos). It is the same house on the photos :
Saint-Nazaire - Pont tournant.jpg
Bundesarchiv_Bild_101II-MW-6434-09%2C_St__Nazaire%2C_U-Boot_einlaufend%2C_Musikkapelle.jpg
$_12[1] (2).jpg
If it's Saint-Nazaire, it isn't U 628 (1st U-flotilla in Brest).
I don't know. No distinguishing marks on this U-Boot (6e or 7e U-Flotilla).

Hello to all :D; about this U/K U-boat, could be U 624? she was attached to the 7th U-Flotille at St. Nazaire and in her first patrol sunk four ships (7 with the 3 HMS LCT aboard one of them). The U Boat (second picture) carried four Sinking pennants (the first red).

What do you think? Cheers. Raúl M 8-).

Yes could be but the "skipper" does not look like Soden Fraunhofen?
