tallinn convoys 1941

Post by Kurt Hoffmann » Sat Mar 07, 2020 9:39 pm

Hello all,
between 28th and 29th August 1941 the russian fleet and merchantmen left Tallinn to Kronstadt and Leningrad in 4 convoys. Evacuation from Tallinn. Had these formations a description ? Or were they knowed as 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th Convoy ?
Please give me an answer for explanation or clarification.

thanks

Kurt

The word I have seen used in Russian texts is конвоя (convoy). The first four of 7 groups of ships (which included all of the warships and large transports) were labeled кон-1 through кон-4. I don't remember what the other three were called but can look it up when I have access to my files.

Hello Marty,
thanks for your Answer.
I will yoour information invite in my wrecksite, which is updated in April and in a few days will be publish.
However this large file will be publish in files. The first step is from the beginninh til 31.12.1942.
Further 1943, 1944 and 1945 will be in two halves published. But this lasts. Perhaps till mid 2021.

greetings from Germany

Kurt
