HMS EMS 2

Post by Aris » Mon Dec 07, 2020 7:17 pm

In 1945 the Royal Navy lended two vessels to the Greek Navy HMS FELLOWSHIP ( http://www.fleetwood-trawlers.info/inde ... r/page/10/ ) that became the Fleet Auxiliary 1 and a certain EMS 2 that became Fleet Auxiliary 2.
Does anyone has some information on HMS EMS 2?

From the name "EMS 2" perhaps a prize or seized from Germany (or the Danube)?
But not found anything definite.
Do you know what kind of vessel was "F A 2"?

I have no photos of those small auxiliaries in Greek service, but it seems that they were used as base auxiliaries.
HMS FELLOWSHIP was an ex trawler. EMS 2 could be something similar...

Thank you all.
Crolick, that's an interesting theory. Some ex KFK were captured by the British in the Aegean during 1945, such as:

GD 93, ex-KFK 196. Captured in Symi 14.07.44 (operation Tenement) and towed to Turkey.
GA92, ex KFK 5. Built Greece 11/1943, surrendered 5/1945?
UJ.2152, ex KFK 3. Built 8/43 Greece, Commissioned 20.08.1943, British war prize 14.07.1944
Other ex KFK are also unaccounted for, such as:
GD 96 ex-KFK 264
GD 97 ex-KFK 265
GD 98 ex-KFK 266
GD 99 ex-KFK 2, ex-UJ 2151.
GD 121 ex-KFK 6, ex-UJ 2153

By the way, I have read somewhere that there is a list of German ships that were surrendered to the British at the Dodecanesse in May 1945. Any one has this list maybe?
