Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

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.
