Hello,

Please, do you know why U 712 was used as testing boat in England after the war still 1950 ? It was just a training boat with germans during the war. It had some special devices to justify this ?

Best regards,
Lionfish.

Hello Bad Karma,

I believed it was U 298 at right of U 328.

Best regards,

Hi there,

of course, it is not Ohling in U 965. It is quite obviously U 307 entering Narvik on 5 May 1944. Check the pennants!

Best

Axel
