Notes

: Picture caption: "In strammer Haltung meldet Kapitänleutnant Lemp sein U-Boot von einer erfolgreichen Feindfahrt zurück. 47,000 BRT. sind wieder aus der englischen Versorgung ausgefallen. Der Kommandant erhielt das Ritterkreuz, die Mannschaft das Eiserne Kreuz." Note 2.) Fritz-Julius Lemp notoriously torpedoed and sank the British passenger liner "Athenia" a few days after war was declared. German propaganda said the British sank their own ship to create an atrocity to blame on their enemies. Lemp died when his U-boat was captured in 1941. Note 3.) Title translates German picture caption
