Kriegsmarine photo album

Article about: Hello all, This was offered to me in trade. Was this some sort of thing that was available to sailor's for private purchase or something? A lot if these photos appear to have been published

    Interesting! The sailing ship looks to be the Gorch Fock. They may not be snap shots, but it's still quite a decent album and with a history to it!

    A Google search of the photo indicates it's the sister ship of the Gorch Fock the originally named Albert Leo Schlageter, which was 23 ft longer and was fitted with more powerful engines. It still sails today, named the NRP Sagres, a tall ship/school ship of the Portuguese Navy since 1961. It sailed a circumnavigation of the world in 2010, at 35,000 miles it's longest ever voyage.

    The other training ship the Horst Wessel is still used by the USCG.

    That is a beautiful album William! To me the hand made drawings and notations are something unique and well done. I would think that would add a premium to any typical photo album. Good luck with your transaction! Bob
