1 in stock

Categories: ,


You are bidding on a SUPERB and VERY RARE example of a WW2 German Kriegsmarine Flagg Tashe (signal Flag Bag)…made SPECIFICALLY for U-Boats!  Presumable stored in the conning tower, this stored all the necessary signal flags used to communicate with other vessels while on the surface.  This came to me with a small collection of KM items, that were removed from U-190 in 1945.

German submarine
U-190 was a Type IXC/40 U-boat of Nazi Germany’s Kriegsmarine built for service
during World War II.
Her keel was laid
down on 7 October 1941 by DeSchiMAG AG Weser of Bremen. She was launched on 3
June 1942 and commissioned on 24 September 1942 with Kapitänleutnant Max
Wintermeyer in command.
She carried out a
total of six war patrols during which she sank two ships. On 6 July 1944
Wintermeyer was relieved by Oberleutnant zur See Hans-Erwin Reith who commanded
the boat for the rest of her career in the Kriegsmarine.  
After VE Day, she
was surrendered to the Royal Canadian Navy, in which she served for two more


 Made of heavy canvas, this signal flag bag is in AMAZING used condition!  Some slight marks and wear, but nothing that detracts.  Stamped with the KM Inspection Stamp, it is clearly marked, “Flagg-Tasche fur U-Boote”…and has multiple pockets to store each flag individually.  In my years of collecting, I have NEVER seen another one!  Brought back from WW2 by a Canadian veteran, it would make for a FANTASTIC display!

——————- ABOUT ME —————–

Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft (Fw190, Me262, etc.), as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. As a private collector myself, I am constantly on the lookout for historical memorabilia, authentic photographs, artwork or anything unique relating to military aircraft.
