Kapitänleutnant GERD THÄTER, Skipper of U-466, rejoices on the bridge of his Type VII-C boat after his successful break-through at Gibraltar and subsequent arrival at Toulon – untouched by enemy forces. Most U-Boat men did not go through the ‘Gates of Hell’ at Gibraltar even once – this was the second time for THÄTER! He had gone through once before as I.W.O. on another boat. His father had been a U-boat Skipper in World War I, and the sunburst conning tower emblem was on his father’s boat in that war. At the end of the war, GERD had command of a Type XXI boat, U-3506 and the sunburst was on that tower as well.
