    These pages are from a logbook which sunk with U 352 on May 9th, 1942. The U boat was on it's second patrol off the coast of Morehead City, North Carolina when it was sunk by the U.S. Coast Guard cutter Icarus. The boat lies in 100 feet of water, and is a fovorite wreck for sport divers. Remarkably, these pages survived all these years because they were covered by silt which protected them. Also, this small tray was found on board which says Bremen, and also has the city coat of arms. One of the crew members probably had some connection to this city.

      Hi Mike,

      would it be possible to make photos of the documents in the better quality?
