U-570 Sailor's Cap
U-570 Sailor's Cap

Gordon Charlebois, a Royal Canadian Naval Reserve officer serving in HMCS Niagara, kept this German sailor's cap as a souvenir of German submarine U-570's August 1941 surrender.

During the Second World War, a number of U-Boats surrendered to Allied forces or were seized by Allied boarding parties following battles. U-570, damaged by a British aircraft on 27 August 1941, surrendered to Allied forces, including HMCS Niagara. Subsequently towed to Iceland, repaired, and renamed HMS Graph, the submarine remained in British service until 1944.
