Hi Ron,

nice pics. Regret to say, that they are not showing U 363, but U 232.

Anyway, please keep on with your good job!

Axel

Hi Axel,

Thank you very much, much appreciated :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: .

I am having trouble with this boat.
This boat is listed in my archive as, U 393 commissioned on 03-07-1943 in Howaldtswerke AG, Kiel.

Boat 1.
Image

First commander Alfred Radermacher ??????.
Image

Seen here as Lieutenant-Junior (Leutnant zur See), he was promoted to Lieutenant-Senior (Oberleutnant zur see) on 01-07-1943,
two days before he commissioned the new U 393, is there something wrong, or do i miss something ??.
Image
Image

Boat 2.

Same location, is this the U 394 ??????.
Image

my best regards,

Ron.

Hi Ron
Not on holiday just waiting for new posts1
Re U 232..........Ziehm has (had) better teeth than Wilzer. Had only one foto of 232 so thanks for posting. Have good foto of 363 showing emblem.
Re U 394 please be aware that Unterhorst was in Luftwaffe so would have that badge on his uniform.
Regards and thanks for posting.

Hi Ron,

the Kriegsmarine was no just in time club. The promotion of Radermacher went by post to his flottilla, which finally informed him about verbally. So by the time he commissioned U 393, he was probably not yet aware of it. That is why ke still displayed one stipe.

The photo 2 is clearly not U 394, but shows U 475 after commissioning.

Again, nice pics. Thanks so much.

Best

Axel
