Never seen the lapel pin before! Thanks for showing, Michael. You should show off some of your Kriegsmarine Soldbücher. Kevin, Martin, Justin, .. etc. might help you out, they are all Kriegsmarine enthusiasts if not specialists.

Another one. This soldbuch was floating around a bit so you might have seen it already on the internet. However, this soldbuch is a bit special because they have not crossed out the Feldpostnummern. And more important there is also a note that this soldbuch is a second issue because he lost all his belongings on 27.09.1943. Hew was with Marine Bordflak Abteilung Süd. Two ships were lost in the mediterrean on that day of which one went down with many sailors. So I guess chances are fair that he was on the other which was German tanker Champagne which was sunk that day by U-boats.

All a bit guessing but I think it is quite possible that a tanker had reinforced flak. I always thought that Blockadebrecherbadges were given for ships coming from the Far East but apparently they were also given for crews of ships closer to home.
