U-boats with Emblems
Emblem entry for U-57
The Running Devil - U-552
This emblem first appeared on U-57 under the command of Kptlt. Claus Korth. There were two variants: a devil with a torch, and a devil netting a small boat with Winston Churchill on board (designed by the WO Oblt. z. See von Hartmann). Erich Topp took over the red devil and made him famous, displaying him on U-57, U-552 and U-2513.
Topp wrote of: "The two dancing red devils carrying the torches of life and of destruction."
Kptlt. Werner Klug was an officer on U-552, and later used the red devils on U-794 and U-1406.
