U-35 crew member Ernst Weber

Ernst Weber was born on 05 November 1915 in Klosterbeuren, Germany. His father died not long thereafter in World War I on the French front. [66]

He was trained by the Plersch company in Illertissen, Germany, in cooling techniques, and at about the age of 18 volunteered in the Kriegsmarine.

The original caption to this wartime magazine photo read: "Most of the forty-three prisoners expressed distaste at their task of sinking defenceless ships and seemed glad that their share in this type of warfare is finished." Pictured: Ernst Weber, Siegfried Kienast, Gerhard Freier, Wilhelm Janssen, Siegfried Bruse, Johann van der Pütten, Martin Müller, Karl Sommerer. [19,33,38]

Before returning to Illertissen in about 1983, he lived for about 15 years in Mexico. He passed away on 2.12.1987 and is survived by his half-sister, Liselotte Wiesflecker. [66]
