    Thumbs up U 995, VIIC/41, Laboe, Kiel, Germany - one of only five German submarines left. GRAPHCS HEAVY!!!

    A friend and I have been in Laboe several times now to see this uboat and I thought Id post a few of my numerous photos here, in case some of you have interest in seeing them.
    I can upload more if these are not good enough.

    I also did a bit of filming inside the boat.

    The photo of me and the gentleman: I met this German gentleman inside the submarine: he told me that he during WWII served on several German submarines, including U 575. It was very obvious that he has an interesting story to tell (and probably similar memories as well).

    After the war U 995 went to Norway and became a school boat there under the name of Kaura.

    More info on this beauty can be found here:

    It was quite an emotional trip for me though. But yes - seeing the boat was an amazing experience... Ill be going there again soon before season is over.

    I wish there was a German u-boat in Belgium. The only submarine over here; accessible for the public, is a Russian cold war sub.

    Keep those pics coming!
