It's like taking a trip down the memory lane.

Thanks for sharing those pictures.

And of course the stories from the meeting.

Good hunting and don't forget to close the hatch!

Great pics Catfish. We'll take more if you got them.

How many of those shirts does Neal have?

Names as to who is who would be of some benefit perhaps?

Looks like it was a great little meet. You all look like you had a good time. Funny no one visited the bilge.

First up is Dan, (You think he's contemplating another Subsim?) Then A passer by maybe looking for a photo op?, Next is Blitzkrieg (Police in New York are still searching for those shoes!) Neal of course! Next 2 are members of U2 or possible Men in Black?

I'm the ugly one.... does that help you?

On the left is Dan, second from left (the pale sand worm) is me, Blitzkrieg is next, then there is only one who can wear the infamous lighthouse shirt and you know who it is. The men in black are Oscar and Einar (spelling?) but I have to admit I forgot who is who of them.

Thanks, will put some more here this evening, and the rest on Box with a link. There are not so much though, i take it Oscar and Einar made a lot and can post them also here or elsewhere (?).

As i said the meeting was much too short, would be nice to repeat this with some more time at my hands..

I already had a hard time to explain the "Untertriebszellen" thing , and for Dan, Einar and Oscar: this second glass plate at the obs scope is not for detecting water/fog in the scope (as i assumed), for this there are two other "valves", and a tap for draining. Have not found out what the second glass is for, maybe there was another part fitted, like a "Dreieckspeiler" (~triangle direction finder). Maybe we can ask Paul ?

Here is some more about the observation periscope, which had some different names in german, like
Beobachtungssehrohr
Luftzielsehrohr
Nachtsehrohr
(Sehrohr = Periscope)
The angle of the upper lens could be moved, so you could see planes directly above, also the viewing angle was wider than that of the attack periscope, which is why it also was used at night due to the better luminosity.
http://www.tvre.org/en/aiming-with-the-periscope
The observation periscope in the 995 is pof the ASR C/13 type.

Greetings,
cf

Thank you sir, I have met both Dan and Neal in person and have seen previous pictures of Oscar and Einar but I'll unashamedly admit that it was you I was wanting to identify.

I still have fond memories of the discussions we have had on TS in previous years and always found you to be friendly and polite.

I have a list of people I intend meeting in person one day and you are one of those on that list.

I was talking to Neal the other day and said "I'm getting a sudden urge to drop everything and jump on a flight to Hamburg" and Neals response was predictable, "Do it".

I'm regretting not having done that now.

Yes, it was too short, I wish you could have attended the pub/kebab mess afterwards.

I wish you had been there, brother. I think we would still be there now if you had.

^ And I hoped no one misses my picture:
Unfortunately there should be one taken by Schroeder on the other camera, will look again this evening. Hmm, seems Oleks also escaped from the group photos.

Really a bunch of nice guys! Thanks again Neal for organizing, and all your work . I hope your 9-hour-drive home went well. And apart from the other usual suspects, I would like to stay in contact with Dan, Oleks and Paul X., lots of questions, also regarding the journal. I think Neal has the info, or we read each other on Subsim.
Maybe we can create a four-man "crew of 2016", for Marulken. Or even better, several
