Laboe / Kiel
U995 was in service during world war II. It sunk several Allied boats in the Northern seas on their route to Russia.
Hi Farmer Phil, we discussed U-boats so I made this page for you to see the U995 in Kiel, Germany.
It sits on the beach
You pay in the booth
This is Henk, our boy-next-door who traveled with us,
The boat was full with gauges, tubes, valves... everywhere!
One of the two Diesel engines
Beds that were always occupied.
On top are the 'lockers' of the crew.
Depth rudder (I guess)
Vocal pipe :-)
1940ties 'High tech' position indicators
There was one big door ...
But Henk did also the U-boot crew door-dive
Torpedo rail, still usable
Henk between torpedo tubes
One is still in there
And Henk is launching it.
Henk is sheltering for the rain :-)
This is me
Other side of the boat
City of Kiel and a ferry leaving for Scandinavia
The building on the beackground is a monument for the fallen serviceman in the first- and second world war.

So we did ;-)
Well, those beach chairs just had numbers on it. But when you just visited a German U-boat you might read something else ;-)
