Re: What happened to Vorpostenboot V 6517

That is possible.

War diary 65. Vorpostenflottille ends 31.01.1945, and there V 6517 is still mentioned.

Re: Memelland ex Etrema

I can't find any attack on MEMELLAND in norwegian waters.

War diary 61. Vorpostenflottille only reports the escort of MEMELLAND and war diary Admiral norwegische Polarküste states that MEMELLAND reached Kirkesnes at 13:00.

War diary U 81 speaks of one (strong) explosion and a grey and white cloud, but the target was covered by another ship at the moment of the hit(s).
