Nazi Caricatures on U-boats

As part of my current project on caricatures, I am adding a page of Nazi cartoons on submarines.

Churchill and FDR shoveling ships

Sunken ships discuss how they sank

Such cartoons were particularly popular in 1942 and 1943.  After about May 1943 the British and Americans developed increasingly successful measures against German submarines and the theme almost vanished.

Seems the artist wasn't familiar with the American flag in the bottom example
