Hello,

I found on this page, HMSC Monnow was used as an escort vessel from Trondheim to Loch Eriboll, escorting surrendered U-boats.

http://www.desausa.org/images3/forgotten_operation.htm

Only one submarine with HMSC Monnow was noted : U 481. But on the picture, this not U 481 ! Who is it ?

Best regards,
Lionfish

Gents,

We can also remove these two boats from the list,
U 978 (diffent deck), U 1203 (askania in front of the CT).

Does anyone have a pic of U 773.


my best regards,

Ron.

Gents,

I know this pic, but i have my doubts :roll: .

I think U 315`s Snort was fit between 6 Jan 1945 and 15 Feb 1945.
Alot of details could be changed in this period during the contruction of the Snort.

The discussed boat.

What do you think.

Have a nice evening.

Hi
Schnorkel fitted Bergen 11/7/44 to 14/8/44.
Very good chance it is U 315

Hi,

Bremen Vulkan-Vegasacker Werft.

This thread, page 14 and 15.

U 78 left, transferred to the Baltic for trainings duties only, untill the boat was sunk on 16-04-1945.
U 56 in the middle, U 59 on the right.
Image


I agree with Pikap.

U 82, Tirpitz left, this Battleship was allready commissioned into the Kriegsmarine.

Question; Does anyone has a pic of U 76 a Type VII-B.

my best regards,

Ron.

Hello to all :D; just curious about that U 315.......................

U-boats that surrendered at the end of the War.

See here http://uboat.net/fates/surrendered.htm

But about U 315: Surrendered at Trondheim, Norway on 9 May 1945.

Post war information (see more post-war boats):
Unseaworthy. Not transferred to UK. Scrapped on-site in Norway in March 1947.
http://uboat.net/boats/u315.htm

As the picture was taken in Loch Eriboll, then she could not be U 315. The caption reads: Surrendered U-Boat alongside HMCS Monnow, Loch Eriboll, Scotland, May 1945. "A German sub tied along side of us at Loch Eriboll - North Coast of Scotland. First stop from Norway. Will explain details of picture later, such as slot in deck. I was all through this sub."

Cheers. Raúl M 8-).
