German sailor in the combat deck of the Kriegsmarine submarine

Kriegsmarine submarine

German sailor in the combat cabin of the submarine of the Nazi Kriegsmarine of the Third Reich.
The photo was most likely made at the very beginning of the military campaign, since the face of the German sailor was clean-shaven – in the Nazi submarine fleet there was a tradition of not shaving until returning from a military campaign to the base.
In addition, it is interesting that the sailor keeps his hand on the machine telegraph that shows the position of the “Stop Machine” and expects the command from the captain of the submarine.
