Kriegsmarine sailor's photograph album containing approx. 145 original photographs showing all types of German naval vessels encountered by the sailor while posted aboard his S.G. 2 escort vessel sailing out of St. Nazaire, La Rochelle, Bordeaux, Bilbao, etc. The album opens with a portrait of the sailor which he has flanked with two dried starfish. There follows several views of his vessel, followed by dozens of images of a wide variety of smaller German warships he encountered, including U-boats shown individually and in a group, freighters, minesweepers, escort vessels, torpedo boats, and even Japanese vessels. He also includes photos of various heavy weather conditions, port views, his mates, colonial prisoners taken, and...two pigs kept as pets aboard the ship. Very good.
