ITEM 366:    SOLID BRASS U-BOAT MODEL

Item 366: Brass U-Boat, side view

DESCRIPTION: A solid brass U-Boat model made by a “trusted” PoW in the waning days of WW2. Because of war time rationing and restrictions, a piece of suitable brass of the size required to shape this item would have normally been difficult to acquire.

As part of the transition to being released into civilian life, the PoW were encouraged to take classes and to develop skills on machinery to help rebuild war-torn Europe.
