The French navy had the former Austrian battleship S.M.S. PRINZ EUGEN as a target ship after World War One.

hi,

and now I`m burdened :roll: with the nice task to decide who of you gets the price ... :milwink:

IMO, finding the HMS PRINCE EUGENE was the hardest part.

Thus, the next question goes to ... France !

greetings, the pb

P.S. sorry, Peter, I`m going to make it up at the next possibility :wink:

That´s really no problem!
In any case I would have proposed, that OLIVIER takes the next turn!

Next question is a ship identification (easy, I think) :

Which ship ?

hi, Olivier,

a process of elimination (which destroyer is it not ...) leads me to the assumption that this is Z 24 sinking off Le Verdon in August 1944.

hi,

Ten (10) E-boats were - at least partially - lost due to a very special kind of "friendly fire".
