I found a thread here with some very nice photos thanks for that, and any additional suggestions are very much appreciated. It must have been tough duty in those old boats, looking at the exposed con station on the conning tower, and imagining what the quarters must have been like with that stage of technology, it must have been very hard. I wonder if there are any good accounts written by officers or crew of that era. I suppose the mortality rate was less than in WWII, i wonder what the overall figures of total number of boats and total number of ships sunk might me. They had some spectacular successes for sure, but it sounds like the convoy system did the trick for the allies in both wars.

If you're looking for crew accounts, try this site. A lot of copyright expired texts from the era you are interested in such as this:

http://www.archive.org/details/WasJe...bootWissenMuss

I did a quick search of 'uboat' for you:

The problem you may have is any accounts will be in German. But you'll only get out of it the same effort (searching) that you put into it.

I dont mind the german part, i can do some and my father can help with some too. He did not want us to learn it but he is fluent and was there during the war.

I had three cousins who were U boat skippers in the WWII but they went down with their boats.

thanks for that ...i tried a search and found that one thread and will keep working on it. thanks for that link for references. It is a remarkable era to read about the early days of the U boats in Germany, it sounds like they worked very hard on the research and many of the boats in actual service were actually semi experimental it sounds like.

Captain Charles Vane was born in 1680, and was an English pirate who preyed upon English and French shipping.  Vane began piracy in 1716 and lasted 3 years. Vane captured a Barbados sloop and then a large 12-gun brigantine, which he renamed the Ranger.   Vane was among the pirate captains who operated out of the Bohama at the notorious base at New Providence after the colony had been abandoned by the British.  His pirate attacks made Captain Charles Vane well known to the Royal Navy and in February of 1718 Vincent Pearse, commander of HMS Phoenix cornered Vane on his ship the Lark.  Vane  had heard of the recent royal pardons that had been offered to pirates in exchange for a guarantee they would quit plundering, so Vane claimed he had actually been en route to surrender to Pearse and accepted the pardon on the spot,  Charle Vane gained his freedom but as soon as he was free of Pearse he ignored the pardon and resumed his pirate ways.  Charles Vane was again captured and in 1721 was executed by hanging at Gallows Point, Port Royal, Jamaica on March 29th 1721.

 The Sopwith Dolphin was a radical departure from previous Sopwith design philosophies, embodying a reverse-stagger on the wings, a water-cooled Hispano-Suiza engine and an unusual, but highly popular positioning of the cockpit which gave the pilot unprecedented views. One exponent of this purposeful looking machine was Canadian Major A D Carter who claimed many of his 31 victories flying the Dolphin. He is shown here sending an Albatross to the ground on 8th May 1918 whilst flying C4017. Carter was himself shot down soon after became a prisoner of war. He was killed in 1919 whilst test flying a Fokker D.VII at Shoreham, Sussex.
