I voice my doubts whether a ship in the open sea south of Ireland and approximately 250 nm distant from the next German (near Brest) airfield was sunk by Ju 87 ... possibly Ju 88 ?

Hi Jordi,

thank you for the information, a little light in the shade.


Urs,

Gröner has a statement regarding the Year Built of Providentia?
