Hi Nobby,

This was a very difficult one :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: .

U 68 under Albert Lauzemis arrival in Lorient on 16-06-1943 entering the Scorff-Bunker.The river behind U 68 called ``Port de Guerre``.
She was only five days at sea and had to return damaged,that`s the reason why she is so low in the water,
probably she did not fired any of her torpedos.
I have an original pic of U 170 and this is the same river,this boat also returned damaged on 03-08-1944,Lorient.

However,i am not 100% sure about the VII-C.

my best regards,

Ron.

Hi
My only doubt as to U 68 is, not known to have flotilla symbol, U 170 is listed as having one.
Regarding the type VIIc, am I correct that only, Howaldwerk,Flenderwerk and Danziger Werft had this arrangement of vents, i,e, pairs of two?
However cannot find a type seven that arrived around the 03/08/44 with U 170. Baffled!

Hi Nobby,

Please don`t have any doubts,U 68 stays as it is.
There are alot Type IX`s with a crew/flotilla emblems that is not listed.

I`ll hope you understand the pic,if not let me know.

Flenderwerft(Lübeck) had also paired vents below the CT,U 302 for example.

my best regards,

Ron.

Hi
Yes, I put Flenderwerk in my last post, should be Flenderwerft. Also add KRM Wilhelmshaven to list of paired.
Have mailed you what I think the two boats are.
Thanks
Nobby

Hi there,

I have not followed up the discussion on the pics taken at Lorient in summer 1943 while on holidays, but I am afraid it went somewhat astray.

The two boats can be clearly identified as U 759 and U 510 on 3 June 1943 while leaving the Scorff pen on patrol. I am sorry to say, but anything else is wishful thinking.

Best wishes

Axel Niestlé

Hello,
That do you think ? U 801 or U 805 ? Look this submarine had the schnorchel over the panzerkasten box, i'd never seen that before.

This is U 805 !

U 801 never had the schnorchel device before to be sink.

Great, great posting, Lionfish!
Merci, Monsieur Lionfish! Bon travaille!

And I agree with you that this is U 805, still as a training U-Boat and without the Schnelltauchback.
Great find, I am always surprised about the quality of material which still can be found these days!

Merci Lionfish!

Hi Nobby,

looks similar to Alstertor, but it isn't!

Best wishes
