 Helmut Witte began
his naval career in April 1934. Later he served on the light cruiser Köln, on
the destroyer Z-22, and on several torpedo boats. In July 1940 Witte
transferred to the U-boat force. After the usual training he became IWO on the
newly commissioned U-107 under Kptlt. Hessler. Before he left the boat in July
1941, he had taken part in the most successful patrol of the war.

 He commissioned
U-159 in October 1941 and operated in the waters of Panama on his second
patrol. On his third patrol U-159 was a part of the wolfpack Eisbär, which
operated in the waters off Capetown in September 1942. He left the boat in June
1943 and served from then until the end of the war in several staff positions.

——————- TERMS OF SALE —————– 

Most of my items are vintage, and as such are AS-IS, so you must therefore expect a degree of wear due to age and/or usage. I will describe each auction to the best of my knowledge and take as many photos necessary to ensure you are pleased upon receiving your item. All sales are final, so please make sure your questions are answered to your satisfaction before you purchase. 


——————- 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.
