ms HELMUT

Post by Aris » Sun Sep 18, 2022 3:04 pm

On November 5, 1944 the German small cargo ship HELMUT was attacked N of Tilos by HMS KIMBERLEY on voyage from Leros to Rhodes. She went aground at Tilos and sunk. At https://cgsc.contentdm.oclc.org it is mentioned that KIMBERLEY sank "an F lighter and escorting vessel", while at www.naval-history.net she sank just "an F lighter".

Can anyone provide some more details on HELMUT?

Hello Aris,

The Helmut was escorted by GD.98 which survived the encounter without any damages.

Best regards,

She was a motor-schooner according to Byron Tesapsides.
