Very rare U-Boot grouping to Bootsmannsmaat Boleslaus Osewski. Osewski was awarded the Iron Cross 1st and 2nd Class, the U-Boot War Badge, the U-Boot Front Clasp in bronze as well as the Westwall Medal.
- Iron Cross 1st Class certificate issued „An Bord“ on 19.9.1943. Ink signed by „Führer der Unterseeboote Norwegen“ Peters.
- Certificate to U-Boot Front Clasp in bronze. Issued on 12.1.1945 at Pillau. Signed by commander of 3.Unterseebootsausbildungsabteilung Fregattenkapitän (Ing.) Kurt Hohnwaldt.
- Certificate to U-Boot War Badge. Original signature of Dönitz. „Befehlshaber der Unterseeboote - Operationsabteilung“ stamped. 17.10.1941 dated.
- Certificate to Westwall Medal 17.9.1940 dated.
The certificate to the Iron Cross 2nd Class is missing.
We do not know the boat of Osewski but researching his name (which is indeed very unusual) might bring light into his service time.
Very interesting late war grouping! Several u-boats have taken refugees on board when leaving at Pillau in early 1945. His boat might have been one of them!
All documents were framed once and are slightly cut. All are glued on cardboard.
