U 776 surrendered to the British navy on May 16th, 1945 at Portland, England. After the surrender the British navy took over the submarine, and it was docked in the Thames River so people could tour the u boat. After this it was used for testing purposes, and then sunk during Operation Deadlight in December 1945. Before the sinking, serviceman and others stripped the boat for souvenirs. This guage came from the electric motor room from this type VIIC u boat.
