Re: SOVETSKAYA NEFT

Happy to help. And, for the record, I concur that Jordan's book is a masterpiece. One challenge Jordan faced is that the Soviet authorities intentionally hid losses in their merchant fleet from Western sources. They did not want the US to know how vulnerable they were, at least until they were able ...

Re: Soviet motor vessel Voroshilov torpedoed on 29 March 1942 - are further details known?

Maurice,

I tried to track the movements of all Russian ships (over 900GRT) from 1917 forward, especially their status during the turmoil of the 1917-1922 period. I don't have them tracked year by year before 1917 however.

Re: Naval records research in Spain

Thanks, Maurice and Jordi I've thoroughly researched anything available on the web already. (This has been a topic of inquiry for me for at least five years.) The incident in question for me does not involve the (famous) interception described above. I'm looking specifically for help in locating the...

Naval records research in Spain

Hi everyone, Does anyone know a researcher familiar with researching naval archives in Spain? I need to try to locate the deck logs, or similar records, for the Spanish navy cruiser Conde del Venadito from the period November 1895 to January 1896. I am investigating a specific incident in which is m...

Hi Siri,

Thanks for the note. Not sure what happened in the earlier communication. I'd be happy to post some of the databases I created as well as scans I have of some (non-copyrighted) material such as the VMF casualty reports. Let's figure out how to do this.

Re: Soviet motor vessel Voroshilov torpedoed on 29 March 1942 - are further details known?

Looks like the image is visible now. I have assembled the individual scans into PDF files by theater (Black Sea, Northern, Baltic), separated into ships lost and ships damaged for each. If people want copies of the files (they are pretty big -- 700 pages total) send me a PM with your email address a...

I have scans of the individual pages of this report -- there are hundreds. (It is not a single PDF). Here is the scan for the incident in question:
0170.tif
0170.tif (42.28 KiB) Viewed 4606 times
Sorry -- I've tried pasting the actual image but I can't seem to figure out how to get that to work.

Re: russian SNABJENEC VTOROI

Thanks. There are multiple transliteration protocols and they have evolved over time. I have stayed with the US Library of Congress transliteration protocol (ALA-LC). This produces Snabzhenets Vtoroi as the transliteration. The GOST/UN protocol and the BGN/PCGN protocol produce the results you prese...

Re: unknown steamer

If, indeed, this is the correct ship, I can update its history a bit... In 1941, as stated earlier by Maurice, it was renamed VT-527 and put in the service of the Baltic Fleet as a transport In 1943 it was returned to civilian service in the Baltic State Sea Shipping Company (BGMP) as BALTIKA and, a...

Re: russian SNABJENEC VTOROI

Kurt, Snabzhenets Vtoroi (Снабженец Второй) was a fishing ship in the service of Krabomorzverotrest, the Soviet crab fishing fleet. It was not part of the Soviet Far East Sea Shipping Company. As such, I doubt it was on point-to-point transit when it ran aground in heavy fog near the Stone of Danger...
