Here is the place to say, where we list all the documents and pictures
and where they were taken from and by whom.
Although U-boat men seem to be descendants of the old pirates, nowadays it
is only fair to say who had actually performed the primary work and where
it originated from. It is these people we say "Thank You"!
But marking all documents whith copyrights and gratitude would disturb the
design of the page and therefore, I believe the best solution is to list
everything here in order to get a compromise between the needs of copyright
and page design.
If someone of the owners does not like the use of their materials as despicted
they should mail me and the documents
will be removed immediately
