An original A4 sized photo of Borne in uniform mounted on a board backing for framing, with a four line ink dedication at the base, dated 31 July 1944 and signed by the Admiral. A pencil signature, probably that of the photographer, is also visible at the base of the photo. The picture was taken on the day Borne received the rare German Cross in Silver and retired from the Navy. At the end of the war, he was taken prisoner by the Russians and died in captivity on 31 January 1946.
