german Blockadreunner HERMES

Post by Kurt Hoffmann » Sun Sep 15, 2019 5:28 pm

Hello all,
the german Blockaderunner HERMES x KARNAK was scuttled at 10th July 1941.
She was on a journey from South America Port to French, german Port.
Does anybody know the names of the 2 Ports ?

thanks

Kurt

hi,

I think that it is reasonable to presume that she was proceeding towards Bordeaux, like all other blockade runners

greetings, Urs
