This metal ID tag once belonged to a German submariner named Joachim Schultz. The entire crew of U-85 perished on April 14, 1942, after the destroyer USS Roper made radar contact with the sub and successfully targeted the pressure hull with its deck guns. Most of the U-boat’s crew survived the impact but died in the water after the Roper deployed 11 depth charges; their bodies were recovered and buried at Virginia’s Hampton National Cemetery.
