SHARKHUNTERS International
Southern Patrol - 2013!

Afternoon and Evening With Veterans
We were specially invited to the HQ of the Marinekamaradschaft "Admiral Sterneck" for several hours hours on Saturday afternoon with the veterans.  This is an overview of the warm fellowship between former enemies, now friends - some of our group were meeting new friends while others dashed about for autographs.  Our hosts and the people there were great!

 
We arrive for a great afternoon.

Let's get the festivities started........
 

Getting started - with beer of course.   Left to right:
HARRY COOPER (1-LIFE-1983) USAF; USCG (Aux)
ERNST PRUEGL (7684-2013) Australian Coast Guard
PAUL RÍSCH (7019-2005) 5th SS
KARL-HEINZ FISTER (77229-2013) German Marine

In the background is Peter, a Doctor of Law

The beer, the wurst, the fellowship

 

and the friendship was freely flowing

     
 
ERNST PRUEGL and the President of the Ladies Auxiliary   the Future!
     
 
    KARL-HEINZ FISTER speaking;
ERNST PRUEGL translating - sort of.
     
 
The presentation and the friendship  

All our attending Sharkhunters Members were presented with one of these pins - the original pins of the first Ulrichsberg Memorial.  This was a wonderful thing our hosts have done.

Enjoy the rest of these photos of fellowship between former enemies, and the beauty of the HQ of the Kameradschaft.

 
     
 
     
 
     
 
     
 
     

This has been a great afternoon and quite busy.  Tomorrow will be even busier but we have a little free time this afternoon to tour the town and do some shopping then in the evening, another great gathering with the veterans.

 


Some of us have enjoyed shopping while others relaxed at sidewalk cafes savoring the wonderful ice cream treats served here.  After a couple hours rest, we again join the veterans for another evening of fellowship.

We had such a great time - we always do and it feels as if we are at home with family.  ERNST, where are your eyes looking?

Now we head back to our hotel and some well deserved sleep.  Tomorrow will be a very busy day.
