In winter blues or summer whites, HOLLDORFF in U-Boat Engineering School

GÜNTHER HOLLDORFF was Engineering Officer in the U-Bootwaffe.  During his training aboard U-416, that boat collided with another boat during training exercises off Pillau and went down with heavy loss of life.  This was the second time that U-416 was sunk.  In 1943, she struck a mine off Bornholm and sank, was salved and put back into operation as a training boat.  The collision occurred in 1944 and this time the boat was not salved.  As we see by this art, GÜNTHER was a pretty fair artist.  He was with us for several Sharkhunters “Patrols“.
