Replica U-boat Cap & Hat Devices

Welcome to the U-boat device page. Your mail order source for replica cap & hat devices of the U-boot arm of the kriegsmarine. My replica devices are Handcrafted by me from 20ga nickel silver & brass sheet Hand sawn ,filed & pierced & hole's are punched for attachment & polished to a high luster or left in the rough *hand polished & tranished for effect.My pieces are touchmarked so they cannot be passed as originals. Knowing as an U-boat enthusiast & A avid student of U-boat history know how hard these devices are to find if not impossible. I decided to research the devices & create them for the re-enactor as well for the collector. I'm offering these as replica's not originals. All my devices have been researched from the books U-boat Emblems of WWII 1939-1943 & U-boats in action, U-boat Crews & U-boat 1939 to 1945, U-Boote 1935-1945. Most of the original's were made from brass or tin repair sheet or Aircraft skin i.e. Sunderland's, Libirators, Hudson's, when shot down or misplaced depth charges brought them. Then used the matrial to hand file & cut into emblems & some cast from soild tin solder block's during long mission's such as the Snorting Bull of U-47's Korvettenkapitän (The Bull of Scapa Flow)Günther Prien's Boat. Mine are made from 20 Ga nickel sheet to simulate tin & to make a very sturdy hat device & .032 brass sheet for the brass device's. Device's are sew on & hole's punched for attachment.

Notice the the 3X blackcat or (Blackcat times three) on Teddy Suhren's visor hat it was a very common pratice to adorn hat's as well as overseas cap's of the men with these device's
