Pre WW1 , I was considering using a beater for a horn face.

WW2 Uboat kill flag

One of my friends insisted I post some of these Totenkopf items, the top r ww1 and earlier Spike helmet and Busby cap badges, the cloth are all mine field warning flags .the original idea w the skull motive was a attempt at intimidating the enemy, psychological warfare back to the time of pirates and the jollyroger its a fashion statement for some. If u like it i'll find more to post. Folks like decorating their bikes w the skull n bones insignia.You could do a whole new blog just on deathshead ,totenkopfs etc, very pervasive subject. I was just thinking of doing a horn face w a beater badge......

WW1 Unterseeboot U-35 old BUFA fotos

The above foto is not part of the foto group below, 3 WW1 U-boots surrender is all thats on the back. All the ww1 uboats r at the bottom or scrapped . You can see the cable,net cutters at the front. Just a neat old foto from another desperate time in history.

Off the coast of Dalmatia.

Stumbled on this grouping of ww1 U-35 Fotos.they are from 1914 era, on all the backs are this style description, not sure if they are press fotos or sailors souvenir fotos. Not motorcycle related but pretty kool to see. U35 is at the bottom of the ocean somewhere.
UPDATE after posting this a fellow in Sweden wrote me to tell me about the silent film made about this unterseeboot. look here
