Hi Darius,

Look at Lloyd's register of shipping from 1939 to 1945 on the net

Hi Jordi,

yes, it is. Thank you.

There is also a section in "Merchant Fleets Of The World 1939" - quite 2 pages long.

Hi Jochen,

not yet. I also wanted to get an overview on the operations / movements - and of course losses / connections to actions of allied or axis forces.

Regards

Darius

Is there any reliable source which would provide the daily movement of Turkish vessels in the Aegean?

Hello,

I have never come across any source of daily movements of Turkish vessels or overview along the coast lines during my researches. I am willing to supply informations concerning specific vessels which were lost, but can`t offer more.
