109. WWI US Navy SUBMARINER
Uniform & Photo Album Grouping - Captured German
UC-97 Crew Member!
rare grouping to MM2/c Robert Joseph MANGIN.
He served in WWI with the submarine tenders USS
Fulton and USS Bushnell. Most interestingly,
he served as a crew member of the captured German
U-Boat UC97 during its Great Lakes Liberty
Bond Tour. Also comes with his
certificate of service in WWI, and citations for the
Victory medal, button and clasp. Comes with two
extremely rare booklets - From the War Zone to
Chicago on a U-Boat and Ten Thousand Miles on
a German Submarine. These may be the only two
known copies as none are on the used book market.
Also comes with his Navy Unifom - period named to
him on interior of pants and tunic. Last, his
personal photo album from his time serving on the
U-97. Contains 96 photos, almost all from his
service on the submarine! He is easy to
identify throughout the album, many personal photos
of the U-boat, great interior shots, crew posing on
deck, other captured German u-boats, studio portrait
of Mangin, in various ports of call and more.
Historically important grouping!
