Hello tigre,
tigre wrote: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-).
I also think it is U 624.

Found original on above web-site
Underneath foto is "Auslaufen zur V. Feindfahrt, Durchbruch durch die Straße von Gibraltar. 1. Boot (vorn) U-Förster
Does this mean front boat on foto is commanded by Förster??

U 425?
http://uboat.net/boats/u425.htm

Interestingly who he was and how many years after the war has survived this one castaway from U 425?

Reason: Only correct is: U 425 [without hyphen], not - as often to be seen in this thread - U-425 with hyphen
