Equipment Plates from U-190
These plastic plates identifying equipment in U-190 were kept as souvenirs of the surrendered U-Boat.
Surrendered U-Boats and their crews were the subject of considerable curiosity for Canadian sailors, many of whom sought souvenirs of their encounters. Equipment nameplates like these - small, portable, and easily removable - were good candidates. Kenneth George Tryon, one of U-190's commanding officers when the submarine was in Canadian service between 1945 and 1947, kept these plates as souvenirs. Other Canadians also acquired similar examples from the surrendered U-Boat.
