SHARKHUNTERS Salutes Veterans
GÜNTHER HOLLDORFF (207-1986)
|In winter blues or summer whites, HOLLDORFF in U-Boat Engineering School|
GÜNTHER HOLLDORFF was Engineering Officer in the U-Bootwaffe. During his training aboard U-416, that boat collided with another boat during training exercises off Pillau and went down with heavy loss of life. This was the second time that U-416 was sunk. In 1943, she struck a mine off Bornholm and sank, was salved and put back into operation as a training boat. The collision occurred in 1944 and this time the boat was not salved. As we see by this art, GÜNTHER was a pretty fair artist. He was with us for several Sharkhunters “Patrols“.
