Hi Nobby, Looks like the commissioning of U 1209.
Check the tug in the background and the position of the swastika on the gangplank, it overlaps on the side away from the camera.

To me it looks like one of the first boat from Howaldtswerke AG Kiel shipyard because of the antenna inlet placement and the width of the light channel. Perhaps U 371

Hi Nobby, The word on the hat seems to spell SEZAS'T or something similar.
