These would have been worn by S-Boat (Schnellboot) crew members! E-boat was the Western Allies' designation for the fast attack craft (German: Schnellboot, or S-Boot, meaning "fast boat") of the Kriegsmarine during World War II.
The most popular, the S-100 class, were very seaworthy, heavily armed and capable of sustaining 43.5 knots (80.6 km/h; 50.1 mph), briefly accelerating to 48 knots (89 km/h; 55 mph). As a result, the Royal Navy later developed better-matched MTBs, using the Fairmile'D' hull design. Made of Tan Cotton/Rayon, these shoulder straps are in EXCELLENT condition!
As they are in used condition, there is some slight wear, marks, and fraying, but nothing that detracts. Each features a hand-embroidered Motorboat Cypher. Would make a PERFECT addition to any collection or display! Most of my items are vintage, and as such are AS-IS, so you must therefore expect a degree of wear due to age and/or usage.
Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft Fw190, Me262, etc. , as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. Use is solely based on my authorization only.
