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.

Following this thread, I'm looking for data about the Turkish merchant and military navies in the Black Sea during WW2, so if there's some info in English (or Russian, French, German), I'd be glad to read it!
