88.   U-BOAT Photo, MEDAL, Feldpost & Document Grouping - U-740 - KIA
Very nice grouping to Obergef. Erich LANZINGER who served on U-740. My buyer acquired this directly from the family. He was KIA on June 8, 1944 when the boat was sunk in an British B-24 aircraft attack. Comes with his original “F.O” marked U-BOAT BADGE|. 133 original photos with many good photos of the U-740 - commissioning, Olympic Rings tower emblem (U-740 captain was a member of the "Olympic Crew" class), crew on deck, U-Boat badges in wear, loading supplies before mission, other U-boats at sea, and more. Also comes with a large amount of FELDPOST including appx 40 that he wrote FROM HIS U-BOAT when at sea! Also letters to his family informing them of his death, and more documents.
