Ernst was a II. W. O. on board U-345 then with the same Skipper, aboard U-821.  It was Ernst who designed the conning tower emblems for both boats seen above.  He was luckily transferred off U-821 and sent to Commander's School but the boat did not return from her next mission.  While in Commander's School, he was roommate with Hans-Georg Hess, the youngest combat submarine Skipper of World War II.
