Kriegsmarine Patches, A Couple of Questions


Recommended Posts

I'm starting to put together a couple of Kriegsmarine themed Xmas present displays for some US Navy vet friends.  First I'd like opinions on authenticity of these two patches.  Second, despite my searches, I can't figure out if the KM had any kind of equivalent to the US Navy Dolphin badge.  If so, please post a photo or reference.  Thanks!!!

Mikie,

 

The two rates look fine, both are pre-1945 originals.. As far as the Dolphins badge, the only thing that I can think of that would come near to a similarity would possibly be the submarine combat clasp as seen in the link below..

 

Other than the standard U-Boat badge..

 

Hope this helps..

 

Best regards, stay safe..
