U-35 was featured on LIFE Magazine on 16 October 1939. Upper left is Obersteuermann Walter Arnaschus; right is Erich Rosemann. The photo was taken in September 1937.
"LIFE'S COVER: The German submarine U-35, shown on the cover, distinguished itself last week by bagging a Greek steamer and bringing the survivors to the Irish shore. It is a 500-tonner built three years ago at Krupp's Germania yards at Kiel and flies the Nazi war flag with a red field. It is painted gray on the sides to blend with the sky and black on top to blend with the water when submerged. The rows of round holes are the intakes for induction valve. You are looking forward from about midships."

Erich Rosemann later served on U-31, and was killed when U-31 was sunk on 11 March 1940 during practice maneuvers (the entire crew, shipyard workers and engineers - 58 in all - were killed). The ship was raised and put back into service. Erich Rosemann was buried at the military cemetery Wilhelmshaven-Ehrenfriedhof, Block Ea Grave 108.
