U-35 crew member Theodor Schütt

Theodor Schütt was born on 14 August 1916.

U-35 on New Year's Day, 1939, in Spain (probably El Ferrol) during the Spanish Civil War. On the dock: Gottlob Wilhelm Fischer, unknown, Walter Arnaschus, Johannes Martin. On board U-35: Theodor Schütt, unknown, Ernst Wensorra, Peter Schwarz, Johann van der Pütten, Paul Fichte, Helmut Parthum, Erich Herrmann. [47]

113m.jpg (139993 bytes)On 12 October 1939, Theodor Schütt was awarded an Iron Cross (second class) with the Chief Engineer Gerhard Stamer for making successful repairs to U-35 on 21 September 1939 while sitting at the bottom of the sea at 115 meters (377 feet). A British destroyer had dropped only one depth charge (because, said the escort captain, contact was doubtful). That depth charge was so accurately placed that it knocked out one of U-35's periscopes and put the blower system out of action.
