This page shows the decorations, awarded to men in the U-boat arm. The list includes both the usual Wehrmacht decorations and also special U-boat decorations. The awards are shown dependent on whether any U-boat commander was given one or not. As we add further information on the officers new awards might pop up here.

U-boat decorations

Other decorations

Decorations that do not specially refer to the U-boat service as such but many members of the U-boat service were given those either before or after their service on U-boats.

The following award I do not have any known U-boat commanded recipient for. This award should however be included as it's relevant to our subject.

Leistungsabzeichen der Kleinkampfmittel

(Merit badge for midget forces)
The badge was awarded in seven grades according to number of patrols.
