My Kriegsmarine postcards

Article about: Ahhh, the Bismarck, a great looking ship. 53,000 tons of German prowess, all brought undone by a plane that in all likelihood could have been shot down by the Red Baron. I've always wondered

    Indeed I do! A great shot of an S-Boot, the Stuka's of the sea! Although I'd rather be in a Schnellboot than a Ju-87, the S-Boat would nearly be as fast I'm not an experten on S-Boots, but would this be an early one? No forward 20mm, no armoured bridge? I can't see a number on the hull either. My sort of ski boat!

    Great cards ! The Schnellboot one is awesome! Yes the Stuka of the sea for sure.

    Such a deadly and potent weapon, the 'Great White Shark' of the Kriegsmarine

    During World War II S-boats sank 101 merchant ships totalling 214,728 tons. In addition, they sank 12 destroyers, 11 minesweepers, eight landing ships, six MTBs, a torpedo boat, a minelayer, one submarine and a number of small merchant craft. They also damaged two cruisers, five destroyers, three landing ships, a repair ship, a naval tug and numerous merchant vessels. Sea mines laid by the S-boats were responsible for the loss of 37 merchant ships totalling 148,535 tons, a destroyer, two minesweepers and four landing ships.

    In recognition of their service, the members of Schnellboot crews were awarded the Knight's Cross on 23 occasions, and the German Cross in Gold on 112 occasions.

    WWW. Meister: Not a postcard, though the same size. It's the odd man out in my collection, being the only WWII ship I have. If you want it, send me your mailing address and I'll put in in the mail. Dwight
