    Hi Al,

    Hello all,

    I'm researching for SM U-35, during La Pierre's, because of episode in the south of Portugal, April 24th 1917. U-35 sunk four ships in that day 1 to 2 miles off the Portuguese coast.

    Any info, documents, photos or KTB would be of great help. The photos in the thread are from U-35?

    The mascote mentioned, anyone have a clear picture of it? I'm planning to make a scale model. Does anyone knows a model to purchase and build?

    Best regards

    Jorg: This is a excerpt from Arno Spindler, Handelskrieg mit U-Booten, 1914-1918, vol IV, which might be useful to you. The boat's KTB is found in The Records of the German Navy, 1850-1945, microfilm copies of which are held by the British National Archives and the US National Archives at College Park, MD. The US NARA record group (RG) is RG242 and the microfilm publication is T1022. There is a finding guide for T1022 that will tell you exactly which microfilm roll you will need to buy to read the KTB ffor that patrol period. The Bundesarchiv holds the original documents, I think in Freiburg. Dwight

    For those of you who might not have seen the 1917 German newsreel on the U-35 at war called Der magische Gürtel this link will take you to it. I have forgotten how long it runs, but it is the full length film not just a video clip. Dwight Der magische Gürtel - 1917 - German Propaganda in WW1 - YouTube

    Yes, with the 2 reels aprox. 45'. The box set from the Imperial War Mesuem is a must have, because has the original German footage, the british editing and a book. It is a very relevant document regarding war propaganda from both sides, and an incredible document to the submarine warfare.

    You may be interested in a couple of e-Books from Project Gutenberg:

    The Diary of a U-boat Commander by Sir Stephen King-Hall - Free Ebook and The Journal of Submarine Commander von Forstner by Forstner - Free Ebook - I rather liked them.

    There are also others on this site.
