    Hi guys,
    I have these u-boot red lights.
    The guy I got them from says, his father Bering a professional diver got them from a sunken u-boot in The Baltic Sea.
    I would VERY much appreciate any info or pictures any of you may be able to provide on these, since I have had no luck myself so far :-/

    Mfg

    They look brand new!!
    Hard to believe they came off a sunken wreck?

    They dont look brand new in real life. They are made of brass and was brought back some 40 years ago . Mfg Marc

    A couple more pics :-)
    It seems like they were once painted in a very light green/grey shade !

    Ok Marc - I see the corrosion now in the closeup photos.
    Still very good for 30 years under the sea.

    There's something you don't see everyday. Very Nice.

    An example from U-Boat U995, not the same as yours but very similar in design concept as far as connecting to the electricity...Is there any markings at all?

    I've seen these, but mine are somewhat smaller and there are no markings :-/

    To be honest - I am not an expert as regards the German WWII U-boot's interior, but I can imagine that different types of internal equipment were in use, depending on U-boot type, year of production, shipyard were the boat was launched etc.
    Look at the 9th (and 7th as well) photo from the link: it could be something like this, however it is not exactly the same.

    Wire protectors suggest that it was placed in communication area, where it could be easily damaged.
