    Question Documents taken from U Boat

    My Dad removed these off the U190 when the ship he was on captured it within Canadian waters.

    I think they are transfer orders but I'm not sure. Also do they have any value?

    I agree that they are equipment transfer docs. As to value, I would not pay more than £5 each. Its very difficult to say, as if someone wants them, they will pay good money for them.

    The first one refers to 2kg of Welding wire of 2 and 4mm thickness.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Correct. The second one is for:

    3 Light bulbs
    1 Roll of electrician's tape
    1 Roll of Ölleinenband (literally "oil-linen tape", perhaps "oilcloth tape" would be the correct translation, but I am not sure about that and the actual use of this item.)
    1 Pad of testing-paper for determining electrical polarity
    1 Attachment plug for an electrical hand lamp

    Much depends on the Value of Paper work, Myself I would keep these Esp as there is a family link.

    HPL Maybe the Oil cloth Tape, would of bean used for outer cover for the insulation Tape (?) when making electrical Repair in a Damp environment.

    Could be. Perhaps a member with a specialized interest in U-Boats or naval matters in general will know for sure.

    As the second document shows E.Masch., it is clear that the equipment was for the Elektromaschinenraum of U 190.

    Great documents.

    Best regards
