*  GEORG WILHELM SCHULZ (162-+-1986) was known as 'Vatti' Schulz (Papa Schulz) by the men of the U-Bootwaffe because he was well liked and highly respected.  He is probably best known for his 'Edelweißboot' (U-124) but in addition, he trained many of the best U-Boat Skippers - REINHARD HARDEGEN (102-LIFE-1985), Werner Henke, Joachin Mohr to name just a few.

**  We note that Rolf Mützelberg was killed
with U-203, not killed in action (KIA) because he was not killed in combat.  In a safe area with a calm sea, Mützelberg stopped the boat and allowed his men to swim off the boat.  He dived off the bridge and failed to take into account the wide saddle tanks of the Type VII boat - he struck his head on the tank, killing himself in a sad accident.

From 9 September 1935, U-10 was attached to a training flotilla as a schulboot (training boat).  When war broke out, she assigned to a Front-Bootflottille as a Frontboot (combat boat) where she operated in the North Sea and the North Atlantic until June of 1940.  She was then transferred to the 21st U-Bootflottille based in Pillau as a permanent schulboot.  U-10 was decommissioned 1 August 1944 and was broken up for scrap after the war.

SPECIAL NOTE; MORE INFORMATION - There is much more information on this boat and others in our book "The Rare Types".   CLICK HERE for more information on this boat.

Many thanks to our friend and Sharkhunters Member since 1987 GEORG HÖGEL for all the conning tower emblems used in our monthly KTB Magazine and also here on the pages of our website.  GEORG was radioman aboard U-30, the first boat into combat, the first to sink a ship (the liner ATHENIA) and the first into an occupied French port.  When that Skipper (Lemp) took command of U-110, GEORG was one of the former crew to transfer to the new boat under Lemp.  After the war, he was Professor of Art at a major German university.
