Some of you probably already seen this but check it out if you haven't
http://www.uboataces.com/ref-insignia.shtml

Essentially all the insignia's used for each U-Boat ever commissioned. Quite amazing really, great source of artwork for signatures. Noticed one thing, some of the U-boats used the Spanish Coat of Arms as their insignia, wonder why...

Maybe a reference to the spanish civil war, although I don't know whether U-boats participated or not.

Great website, a wealth of information within its pages. It also appears that Ubi used some of the information in the construction of SH3. I got a new spot in my favourites for this site http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Yeah, in reference to the Spanish Coat of Arms, is it possible that some of the U-boats dawned this after entering Spanish ports to refuel? Maybe out of respect.

Maybe it is a reference to the spanish domination of the oceans in the 15th and 16th century? (a reference to the Armada itself seems unlikely, since it was pretty much chewed up by the English the Dutch and some gales ;-))

A good find. Too bad they aren't in colour.
