(This information has been posted on the U-Boat Society Website).

I have started posting film clips on youtube, my first two clips are Kriegsmarine.....

October 1939.
"A U-Boat returns home after sinking the aircraft carrier Courageous. That liar, the First Sealord Churchill at first claimed that no aircraft carrier had been lost, then when he admitted it, he said at least the U-Boat had been sunk. Here you see the U-Boat"

August 1939

The following is a modellers technical masterpiece, it is the Marine Hitler Youth sailing from Passau to Budapest along the Danube in August 1939. You will see a battleship and a passenger liner scale models, notice the head and shoulders of the two crew members in each craft, wonderful.

Cheers, Bill.

Great vids Bill thanks for posting them. I noticed in the first vid when the officer was awarding the medals he was just pokeing the pins through the material

Yes I noticed that too, when I got my medal it came in a brown paper bag, not at all how I imagined it would happen :(

Anyway, are you a member of the UK based U-Boat Society?
I am sure it would be interesting for you, even if you only talked nautical with the lads online.

Cheers, Bill.
