Here is another postcard in a cache I recently obtained.  This one shows the Captain and crew of WWI German submarine 'U-9' after sinking 3 British warships in September 1914.

This postcard from the same group shows 'U-9' Kommandant Otto Weddigen.  Later transferred to U-29, Weddigen was killed when that sub was struck by a British warship.

Again, great quality to these real photo postcards and fantastic subject matter.

Thanks, Koen!

with the centennial of the war coming up, I'm working more on that collection of mine (I have boxes of postcards and photos) and looking for more nice images to add to the collection, too.
