Greetings all U Boat enthusiasts! Here are the promised pictures of U 2540 - the ONLY surviving U Boat of WW2 vintage which is still floating on water. The U 2540 is a type XX1 which was completed just before the end of the war, and then scuttled as the war finished. She was raised in 1957 and pressed into service with the recently re-formed federal Navy and called the Wilhelm Bauer. Around 1987/88 she was withdrawn from service and refitted as close as possible to how she was in WW2. Of note are the modern-looking chairs.
Those of you who saw my previous posting of the U 534 may recall my mention of my daughter entering the U Boat with her shopping bag. Well just look at what she did when sent on this latest spy mission with her husband!
