    Default U boat Relics

    Does somebody have any U boat relics to share, I have only seen the ones of U 534, but I am certain that many tiems have been recoverd form sunken U boats like U 869


    and well the boat itself is a relic:

    Those are great photos guys. That one floating on the barge is the exact reason it would have been pretty stressful to serve on a U-boat. Thanks

    Courage is not the lack of fear, it is the ability to take action, no matter the cost.

    Yet we must still remember that some of this boats like U 853, U869 and many others are war graves, therefore they sholudn“t be disturbed:

    Then the question is: If a fallen soldier in any fornt is discoverd by relic hunters and they notify the proper authorities and they give the MIA a proper burrial, its correct to keep the relics dicarded maybe, but in the case of U boats, this men are already burried in their boat, is it ok to remove relics?

    I think not as it would be as going to a military grave yard and take the things the dead are burried, as in this case this steel hulk is their coffin. In the case of U boats sunk in operation Deadlight, well I guess that is another matter.

    What do you guys think ?

    In response to your question -All u boats that still have bodies inside are classed as war graves & should be treated as such . Off the coast of Torbay , devon uk , there are 3 u boats that where sunk during the 1st & 2nd world wars . All 3 are war graves & all have exclusion zones around them . If you are found to have taken anything you will be arrested & I belive that the German government still own them even though they are in UK territoral waters .
