U-boats with Emblems
Emblem entry for U-124
The Edelweiss - U-124
The emblem of U-124, the Edelweiss, was inspired by the loss of U-64 in April, 1940. The boats had the same crew for the most part, including the commander Kptlt. Wilhelm Schulz. They were saved from the cold Norwegian waters by members of the German mountain troops. The grateful U-boat men adapted their emblem on their next U-boat, the U-124 commissioned in June, 1940.
When Kptlt. Johann Mohr took command of U-124, in late 1941, he added his own personal emblem, a green frog, to the front of the tower. Keeping the Edelweiss on both sides.

When Jochen Mohr took command of the U-124 in Sept 1941 he added this emblem to the boat already displaying the famous Edelweiss.
Several other U-boats displayed a frog but the frog of U-124 was not seen on another boat as far as I can tell.
