May 2021  Highlights


 

Firstly, we hope our customers are remaining safe during these difficult times. ULRIC of ENGLAND remains open for mail-order business, and is endeavouring to give as good a service as possible in the current situation. Please bear with us, if there are slight delays, either contacting you, or despatching items.

 

 


For our May Highlights, we have picked three historical German Navy artifacts, all from the renowned Clayton Naval Collection.

 

 


The first is a stunning brass Kriegsmarine U-Boat bulkhead clock, removed from U-541 after it surrendered at Gibraltar in 1945. One of the naval shore-staff, removed the clock as a souvenir, but also cut out the U-Boat’s stamped build details from the bulkhead. The Kriegsmarine clock, mounted to the build section of the bulkhead, has remained within the same family from 1945 through until 2016, at which time it was acquired for the Clayton Naval Collection.

 


 

Next we offer a Kaisermarine German U-Boat clock attributed to the U-20, which sank the RMS Lusitania in May 1915. In 1916, U-20 grounded on the Danish coast, south of Vrist, after suffering damage to its engines. Various parts were removed as souvenirs, before the U-boat was finally destroyed with explosives in 1925. The clock originated from the Hicks collection, and was acquired for the Clayton Naval Collection during the 1990s.

 

 

 

 

For our last May Highlight, we offer a breath-taking Kaisermarine German Mess Officers Dirk. This is probably one of the finest examples in existence today, and feels as though you are holding a piece of fine jewellery. The dirk is manufactured by Eickhorn, and retailed through August Luneburg. It is referenced as their Marine-Offizier-Dolche number ‘328’. The dirk was acquired for the Clayton Naval Collection, from a Norfolk-based house clearance auction in the late 1970s.

 

 

 

 

 

 

More of the Clayton Naval Collection, including rare German naval instruments, can be viewed under our Collections For Sale from the top menu bar.
