U-Bootfarher ERNST GÖTHLING On Eternal Patrol
Sailor Rest Your Oar
When we were in Germany during this “Patrol”, we learned the sad news that our friend ERNST GÖTHLING (1225-1989) had begun his ‘Eternal Patrol’.
During the war, he was an enlisted man serving aboard U-26, one of only two Type I-A U-Boats in the Kriegsmarine. When Germany again built her Navy in the middle 1950’s, he rejoined & ultimately retired at the rank of Kapitänleutnant.
He was a good friend and a strong bridgepost in Kiel. He would not allow anyone to speak badly about Sharkhunters. We wish you fair winds and following seas always, ERNST.
