My Oberleutnant zur See uniform is waiting for his next patrol
Here is my uniform for a Oberleutnant zur Zee. Everything is original including the awards. The cap is shown on page 81 of the book Torpedo Los! by Gordon Williamson. The NSRL emblem worn on the cap was used by crew members of the U-274.
The U-boat war badge on the uniform is an early example in tombak by Otto Schickle.

Beautiful set, for sure. Nice find!

That's a great set up. I really love KM stuff (probably because I had a relative in the KM). I really like the officers reefer jackets. Nice militaria.
A visual feast!

Now that really is a great uniform ,I to would love to have a set up like this one day! I especially love the cap with the emblem. I guess for now I will just have to keep on dreaming! Leon.
