    My guess is that it was probably on some kind of wall plaque ?

    Minus the swastika it appears to be a postwar piece.

    Maybe for a former U-Boat crewmen or group ?

    It's a curious piece. The wreath is executed very well with well defined leaves and yet the U-Boot seems to let the whole piece down by being a bit ......naff.......?

    Unfortunately i'm not able to. The badge belongs to friend of mine and past few days I can't contact with him. Like I said in the first post the badge is rather large, it has a size of big, men's hand so it would be probably around 20 cm.

    This is the emblem of the postwar Verband deutscher UBootfahrer and has, as Martin suggested, almost certainly come from a wall plaque. It was also made as a lapel pin and was the header for the association's Magazine "Schaltung-Küste"
