Hirschfeld

WOLFGANG HIRSCHFELD was Funkmaat (radioman) aboard U-109 under command of Hans-Georg Fischer, then after more schooling and service, he was posted to U-234 as Oberfunkmeister (Chief radioman and Code Petty Officer) for the run to Japan that finished up in Portsmouth, New Hampshire at the end of the war.

His Skipper aboard U-234 was JOHANN-HEINRICH FEHLER (32-1984).

WOLFGANG was with us in Germany for several of our Northern “Patrols” and he gave information to Sharkhunters Founder and President HARRY COOPER (1-LIFE-1983) about the patrols he was on including the cruise of U-234 bound for Japan with a very special cargo.
