    Hi Everyone,

    Over the past year I have begun focusing entirely on items attributed to U-Boat crewmen. This is what I have accumulated so far

    U-455 Soldbuch to Adam Mueller, who served on all 10 patrols during which 3 ships were sunk. U-455 went down with all hands after striking a German mine off Genoa in April 1944.

    Soldbuch to U-393 crewman Hubert Runge. This was never a front boat but nevertheless served as a trials boat, and a training boat from 1943 onward.

    Death Card to U-520 Crewman Josef Schillinger. Schillinger was killed aboard the boats first patrol. Judging from his awards he clearly served on other boats, but I have been unable to determine which ones.

    Very neat collection.
    I knew a Mueller who served as an office on a U-boat. I met him in 1971 or 72.
    He was my stepfather's boss. He came to our house for dinner one night and
    I kept bugging him about his ww2 experience. His boat sub was sunk with only
    a hand full of survivors. He spent the remained of the war in a Scottish POW camp
    which he escaped from 3 times only to be captured again each time.

    He was a very interesting old guy to talk to.

    Sounds like quite the character! Any clue on his boat #?

    Unfortunately not. I was maybe 14 years old at the time and didn't think to write any of this down.
    I've tried to reach out to a couple U-boat forums for help but I don't have enough information to be
    of help researching him.
