    The U-Boat marking for the U-29 should have been a red flag as well. The U-29 was rammed and sunk early on in the war on 18 Mar 1915. Lost with all hands.
    Including the flag......

    There is a number of how to fake it getting about on the internet, I dare say as time goes on, and the real deal gets harder to find,. and the reproductions from the 70's get older we will be flooded more and more with them...
