U-boat Commands

UC 1414 Sep 1917 - 3 Oct 1917 (+)


Feddersen is not listed in the 1914 edition of the Rankliste der Kaiserlich Deutschen Marine, suggesting that he may not longer have been a reserve officer candidate for some period of time in 1914 or even 1913 and 1914. This did not prevent him from being commissioned as a Leutnant zur See der Reserve in January 1915.
