Description

Soldbuch to Kriegsmarine Hauptfeldwebel Otto Bleeck (11.08.1922 - 04.06.2020). Sold by the family in June 2020 after clearing his estate.

Bleeck served on board of U-365 which served exclusively against the Arctic Convoys from Britain to Murmansk and Archangelsk, principally targeting the Soviet forces which greeted the convoys in the Barents Sea. U-365 had 8 war patrols sinking one commercial vessel of 5,685 GRT and three military vessels for a total of 2,300 GRT.

Commanded by Kptlt. Heimar Wedemeyer (8 June 1943 – 17 November 1944) and Kptlt. Diether Todenhagen (18 November – 13 December 1944).

Units noted: Marinenachrichtenschule Aurich and 2. Unterseebootsausbildungsabteilung (U.A.A.).
