Re: Submarine or tuna attack on Oct. 2nd, 1940

Jan-Olof do we know the companions of M-16 while attacked?
And Platon what is written about the convoy that H.49 attacked?

AN6897 is not far from 53°11.5' N, 04°34.5' E (~20 Nm) so that would make pretty good match.

Re: French tug COSTAUD

Hey David, doubt that ship was sunk on May 27th raised within 4 days and sunk again. Nobody was concerned with sunken vessels during the Dunkirk evacuation. On FMA they list COSTAUD as sunk on 31st: https://www.forum-marinearchiv.de/ablage/artikel/duenkirchen.html Don Kindell provides the reason (Ge...

Re: Mysterious sinking on 10 June 1943 and submarine Brin

Dear Platon, Arnold Hague does not list a single casualty for this convoy, so I guess this was a bogus sighting. The list of ships in the convoy: BJORKHAUG EMPIRE COMMERCE II EMPIRE FLAMINGO ENSIS EXPLORER FORT CONFIDENCE GOVERT FLINCK JOHN PAGE NEURALIA PANAMA REGIN TALAMBA YOMA Hope that helps! An...

Re: HMS Olympus

Dear Platon,

These sites:
https://maltagc70.wordpress.com/hms-oly ... alty-list/

https://www.naval-history.net/xDKCas1942-05MAY.htm

does not list Leading Stoker Stanley JONES as KIA so perhaps this was not an error and indeed he was the 10th survivor?


All the best,
Andrzej

Good Evening all, I have one question related to movements of German merchants ships. Are there any files which keep track of all the movements of the vessels, cargo etc? I'm particularly interested in Baltic movements for September 1939. Where can I look for those? Unfortunately I was unable to tra...
