    Kriegsmarine U-Boat Kleintauchgerät with diving suit

    Today I want to show you two of the highlights of my Kriegsmarine collection, a very rare Dräger-Kleintauchgerät with diving suit,
    in German: "Kleintauchgerät mit leichtem Taucheranzug".
    The script Kleintauchgerät on front face of the vest is just hard to see.

    The Kleintauchgerät shares the same size vest as the U-boat tauchretter, but with larger cans and bottles.

    It was used (with or without the diving suit) on german U-boats for repairs outside the boat and for U-boat school training.

    Every Type VII C submarine was 1939 equipped with:
    - 2 Tauchergeräte = Kleintauchgeräte
    - 1 Taucheranzug (diving suit)
    - 1 Satz Gewichts-/Bleiketten (set weight/lead chains)
    - 1 Paar Eisensandalen (pair of iron sandals)
    - 59 Tauchretter
    - 40 Schwimmwesten (life jackets)

    Has anyone ever seen a second U-boat diving suit in a collection or in a museum?

    I would be very happy to see more photos of these rare diving suits or Kleintauchgeräte.

    Regards, collani

              Thank you very much for the comment. They are really very rare pieces.

              I've only seen another such U-boat diving suit once in the tower of the german Type XXI submarine Wilhelm-Bauer (ex U 2540) in the museum harbor of Bremerhaven.
              That was already in 2001. I do not know if it is still on display today.
              Does anyone know if there is another one in a collection or a museum?
