I've been after one of those Stahl-granate cases for ages but the ones i've come across have either been in real bad shape or are ridiculously priced.

the Sailor was involved from the very start when S-176 entered into operations in March of 1944 and with the 2nd Schellboot Flottille at Normandie and made through wars end as the items were purchased though the Familie. One of the unique items is the full crew roster-photo during August 8, 1944.
enjoy folks !
the gilt on the doc is still very pristine and has not faded to the greens
photo the Kommanduer in the centre with his trusty Obersteurmann to his left
and his EK 2 document, interesting to note the Familie blackend out the center of the EK at the top of the doc and green triangled the KM eagle at the lower left.........
S-176 and crew were to lose their Boot on the night of April 27, 1944 with MTB's 493 and 494 the latter was torn in half by S-176, the MTB 493 collided with the S-176 as she came out the other side and MTB 493 lost most of one side of her hull only saved by literally dragging her back to base ripped but she was not to sail again, S-176 then recived the rest of the MTB cannon fire and the CO Stockfleth put on charges and blew the Boot once surviving members were rescued POW and blew the Schnellboot to bits. It's a fascinating story one of many misconceptions of what really happened as the MTB's thought they had sunk a total of 4 of the 2nd Flottille S-Boots. Two of the 6 S-Boots of the 2nd S-Flottille actually got lost in the engagement during what was suppose to be a standard mining op, and made it back to base only much later.

yes think it is one of the better late war docs have seen, most of the hot stuff for S-Boot Ukrunde seems to be pre-43, now you are lucky if you can even find one without breaking the bank.

Werner Töniges was the first recipient of the extremely rare S-Boot Abzeichen mit Brillants. First issued the 1st S-Boot pattern badge on 28th of January 1941 and then received the 2nd pattern S-Boot badge with Diamonds personally from Großadmiral Raeder on 16 December 1942 and this is what is shown on his dress tunic. The bade has 9 Diamonds incorporated into the swastika which is over-sized............. ah more fun things for the KM Schnellboot collection ...........
