WORLD WAR 2

PHOTOGRAPHS UBOAT U108

 Willi Winke Served on U-108 Oct 1940-Sept 1942

WW2 Photo album U-108

Here I offer a cd containing 137 high resolution scans( 1200 dpi ), produced from a rare , well captioned and excellent quality original photo album , which dates from Oct 1940 -sept 1942.

Album belonged to a crew member ..Ob.Mech Willi Wilke , who served on the famous U-boat... U-108 .

It seems Wilkes service matched the dates of its commander Kptlt .Klaus Scholtz ( Knights cross with oak leaves ).

U-108 was commissioned on 22 Oct .1940 ..album contains good photos where both men are pictured along with the rest of the crew at the commissioning ceremony .

There are several things that make this album so special ...

1..it is very well captioned ..nearly every crew member is identified by name and rank . Great individual photos of nearly all the crew.

2..there are many original photos of its commander U-boat ace Klaus Scholtz ( the 18th most successful by total tonnage ) ..sinking a total of 26 ships whilst serving on U-108 . Even relaxed photos of him having a haircut and reading in his bunk .

3.. there are 10 original photos which show ships Effna and Norland under attack and sinking . A further 9 photos show survivors being given supplies and a captain of sunk ship being interrogated and then given directions to nearest land .

4.. 16 photos show the interior of the submarine ... very rare images of different parts of the sub .

5.. 4 photos of the crew named went on to command their own u-boats ..Heinz-Konrad Fenn U-139 & U-445, Paul-Karl Loeser U-30 & U-373 , Herbert Neckel U-531 , Otto Fechner U-164 ...3 of these men died in their respective U-boats .

6. there are many good photos of conning tower and deck.

This is an excellent album whose images should appeal to the serious U-boat enthusiast ...it cost me a very large amount of money ..

Please note images below are only 75 dpi, the ones on the DVD are 1200dpi ..great images .
