This photo gallery attempts to capture the epic struggle of the U-boat force during the Battle of the Atlantic. During the war, German U-boats sent over 2900 ships and 14 million tons of allied shipping to the bottom of the sea, nearly cutting off the vital supplies of food, fuel and raw materials of Great Britain.

Taken from the conning tower of U-217, crewmen can be seen wearing life lines which was a regulation when working on the upper deck.

With thanks to Gerard Walker.


The U-217, a Type VIID is seen here photographed from the U-118. She sank the steamship MV Rhexenor on 3rd Feburary 1943. The U-217 itself was sunk with all hands on 5th June 1943.

More on the sinking of MV Rhexenor

Note from Olli Havo: Note the sub in the pic is a type IX (A or B) due to the pattern of the floodholes (3 + 5) which were present in Type IXA/B/C hulls. The mine carrying compartment is also missing from the photo, indicating that it cannot be a Type VIID. A 37mm flak is visible in the aft section of the deck. The type VIIDs did not carry a 37mm flak.


Crewmen of the U-592. The single 2cm flak can be seen in the background. By mid 1943, these were gradually being upgraded to twin mounts. Also note the beards on the crew, indicating that the boat must have been on patrol for at least a few weeks now.

With thanks to Gerard Walker.

Obtained from an antique market, Dan is looking for information on model specifics to trace the origins, along with how these detonators work to arm and detonate the payload. Please drop us a note if you have these information.
