|Richard Becker, the first commander of U-218, transferred to the U-bootwaffe from Küstenfliegergruppe 706 (Coastal Command), based at Kamp/Pommern. The fishes are freshwater fish from the Kampersee, which the flying boats took off and landed on.
U-218 had no emblem, and Kaleu Becker hoped the emblem would bring his boat luck, as it had for the flying boats. |
