Gentlemen

I was sent a photo of the Offizier and understand he commanded U-Jäger 116 of which he received the Ritterkreuz.  killed in action ?  on 9th of July 1942 in Norway.

Have really nothing on the man, does anyone have biographical information on him to his awards and service time and cause of death ?

many thanks

Hello,
Kpt.Lt.z.See d.R. Wolfgang Kaden (5.12.1899) - promoted post mortem to Korvettenkapitän - was CO of the auxiliary trawler UJ-116 - Grönland, and sank the British submarine "H-49" 18.10.40 off Texel. Later CO of the auxiliary trawler UJ-1110 - Mob.FD 6, and executing officer of the 11. UJ-Fl. He died when the UJ-1110 struck a mine 9.7.1942 just outside Hammerfest (Northern Norway), and sank with 52 victims. Kaden was last seen standing on the bridge when the explosion ocured beneath where he was standing. He was due to take over command of the flotilla when he was killed.
He also sank the Soviet submarine "K-23" 12.5.1942 off Nordkyn.
