Siegfried Endler, possibly someone elevated from the enlisted ranks to officer status during the war, did not belong to Crew 34 as is sometimes claimed. He may have been belatedly attached to the Crew for mere administrative purposes by the Navy’s personnel office, but he did neither share the common training experience of the Crew’s regular members nor did he participate in any Crew events, such as reunions after the war (Rust, 2009).
