Antique, German UB122 Submarine Model, Harwich 1918
Memorializing the Surrender of German Submarines at Harwich Harbor
Likely Sailor Made [trench art], Aluminum, Brass & Copper, entire view

Competently crafted interpretation including the display stand crafted of a 19th century
British candlestick base, a clever threaded cap with tapered pivot pin that the sub sits on.
On 18 November, instruction as to how the surrender of U-Boats would take place
was issued. The German submarines were to gather off the coast of Harwich. The
flotillas were to be accompanied by transports, so that the crews could be ferried back
to Germany after their war craft had been handed over. The submarines would then be
led to Harwich by a force of British destroyers and cruisers.
Recently a vicious storm exposed UB122.
(Sub is 4.5” long; 1.5” high by 1” in depth; height on stand: approximately 4.75”)
