U-889 and her crew on her commisioning day,04-08-1944.
U-889 and her ''Zwiebel" structure.
As far as I know U-889 was the only U-boat to have the ''Zwiebel" structure at the point of her bow.
It was an sound listening device with 15 crystal receivers used on a 60 degree angle when the boat
was using her Schnorchel.
