The crew of U-35, including Theodor Schütt, in Spain. 
On 12 October
1939, Theodor Schütt was awarded an Iron Cross
(second class) with the Chief Engineer Gerhard Stamer
for making successful repairs to U-35 on 21 September 1939 while sitting at the
bottom of the sea at 115 meters (377 feet). A British destroyer had dropped only one depth charge
(because, said the escort captain, contact was doubtful). That depth charge was so accurately placed that it knocked out one of U-35's periscopes and put the blower system out of action. |
