Flotilla History

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

Now with the enhancement of the page the list is growing.

  • The main design and layout is the official layout created by Admiral Schedin for a common look of all flottila pages.
    He retouched some good pictures of the aces from the 9th and also the flotilla-banner is from him.
  • The information about the flotilla and sawfish and flotilla logos is taken from, also, the documents about the base is from there, as well. Furthermore the design of the bio-pages is copied to achieve a more authentic look of the bio-pages.
  • Additionally pictures and informations regarding the base were harvested from The U-boat Bases
  • The laughing sawfish came from the uboat net and were altered a bit for my purposes by Steve Grabowski, another fine pal in our Wolfpack-List who scans these pages for correction.
  • Many pictures were taken out of the books of Lothar-Günther Buchheim
