U-35 underway during the Spanish Civil War.
The national colors of black, white and red are painted the full height
of the front of the conning tower for easier identification;
the superimposed national badge is presumably gold or yellow picked out with black.
The seamen seem to wear the four-button single-breasted jacket
of the pre-war brown working denims,
with leather trowsers and dark blue fall-collar sweaters;
and note that the flat seaman's cap is still worn by all ratings. [8]
