"Etappendienst".

Postby tigre » 14 Apr 2018 00:19

Hello to all :D; a short summary....................................

Supply ship Brake (ex Jurgens van den Bergh).

This tanker was reported in Vigo in September 1939. During July and August 1940, it was reported that she unloaded 4,500 tons of gasoline in Vigo. It was reported that the "Brake" had sailed from Bilbao on March 6, 1941 in search of a French port and it is presumed that it became a supply ship from that date. He left Penang on February 26, 1944 and sunk/scuttled on March 12, 1944 in the Indian Ocean after an attack by "HMS Roebuck". The surviving crew of 196 was taken to Penang by the U 168 and U 532; the U 188 returned to Bordeaux with the remaining survivors. (8) Documented operations of this ship (U 168, 2nd patrol; U 183, 3rd patrol; U 188, 2nd patrol; U 532, 2nd patrol; U 533, 2nd patrol; U 188 and U 532; March 11, 1944 without success U 168)......................

hi,
he left Penang on February 26, 1944 and sunk/scuttled on March 12, 1944 in the Indian Ocean after an attack by "HMS Roebuck".
add info :
BRAKE left Bordeaux in October, 1942 and reached Penang in the Spring of 1943.
In Septenber, 1943, she supplied U 168, U 183, U 188, U 532 and U 533 in the Indian Ocean.
In March, 1944, she supplied U 188 and U 532 before being sunk, herself.
