Although your question is 8 years old, it deserves an answer, here it is:

It is the boat S 198, commanded by Kapitänleutnant Walter Knapp, commissioned July 21, 1944. The boat belonged to the S 130 series, served with the 8th S-flottilla commanded by Korvettenkapitän Felix Zymalkowski and was sunk December, 15, 1944 during a bombing raid on the e-boat-bunker of Ymuiden. Two Tallboy-bombs penetrated the bunker roof and destroyed the boat.

greetings, Urs

I feel somewhat shy about commenting these old mails, but for the E-boats, my favourites, it's unavoidable

Top to bottom
1) a S 38 type boat with the 20 mm bow gun introduced in the summer of '41, possibly operating in the Channel/East coast area 1941-43
2) a S 38 type boat w/o bow gun and a strange camouflage (?), the sketch shows a circular radio direction finder which was introduced after the bow gun
3) a S 38 type boat with "Baltic 1941 / Barbarossa" camouflage, the "gryphon on torpedo" sign indicates a boat of the 1st flottilla, although in a photo in Bürger's book "Schnellboote vor!" (1943) it has a white square (no camo) around it
4) a S 38 type boat with a unusual "Baltic '41" camouflage; no boat of that type in operations had a mast, those were taken off.
5) a S 130 type boat (1944/45), the "playing card" sign indicates a boat of the 2nd flottilla and not of the 9th as given in another sketch

greetings, Urs
