This quiz might be a “week”-quiz, as it is not really easy. I show you seven men:


#1


#2


#3


#4


#5


#6


#7

Those men are connected by a “thingy” and three occasions. Two of the occasions are dates, one is a time frame.

I want to know



  • the seven names
  • the “thingy”
  • the two dates and
  • the time frame, please.
Have fun and a nice weekend.

#1: Looks like Fritz Steinhoff.
Are the gents in question associated with Germany's experiments with U-Boot launched rockets/missiles? (e.g. PRÜFSTAND XII)

Well done cruisey & munrod. Now that you've done some of the brain-work, I'll snap up some low hanging fruit. A few of these fellows were recognizable from a recent quiz.

#3 Heinrich Klapdor
#4 Karl Fleige
#5 Hans-Ludwig Gaude
#6 Martin Landt-Hayen

I hope they fit the theory.

I suspect U-Boot commanders would wear their caps at an angle because it was not standard. They tended to be mavericks.

The captains are absolutely correct, very good!

Do they fit the theory?

Very good, it IS Fritz Steinhoff in 1945.

It is not PRÜFSTAND XII, but submarines and rockets are not wrong.
Then perhaps, Project Ursel?

May be, just tell me for what.
June 1944 Black Sea 30th flotilla's attack on Russian seaport. First use of submarine launched rockets/missles in combat??
