  1. Greetings, I wanted to share with the forum one of my favorite and interesting pieces. Now, these plaques are nothing too unusual and this is a 2nd place plaque to boot. Detlev/Detlef von Lehsten was born in Hamburg 14 August 1917. He joined Kriegsmarine in Oktober 1937. Oberleutnant zS 01.04.42 #190. Last Rank Kapitänleutnant zS on 01.03.45 to date with seniority 18.02.45. He was a watch officer on U 584 October 1942 to June 1943. Designated commander of the U-996 while it was under construction at Blohm & Voss-- it was badly damaged during the Hamburg Fire Storm air raid of 25 July 1943--possibly the greatest peril he survived during the war. I love that this piece was awarded the day before the start of hostilities. One of my favorites. Thanks for letting me share this with you. Regards, JustinG
