Hello,
I think the first boat is U 281 cause it's seams we can see two white bulls in front of the conning tower.
And for the second, i think this is U 1165.

Best regrards,
Lionfish.

Anyone have any other photos of Deadlight? Looking for any of U 1271, on which my uncle 1WO Ewald Uechtritz served.

Yes ! You have the submarine of your uncle on criticalpast web page :

https://www.criticalpast.com/video/6567 ... -submarine

From the fourth picture, you can see the submarine with the number 1271 painted on the tower.

I hope i give you a good help.
Best regards,
Lionfish.

Hi Nobby, If it's any help that destroyer in the first picture is Polish, that should narrow it down a little.

regards MH.

My fathers ship - HMS Hargood - was involved in Deadlight or more accurately Operation Pledge which was the rounding up of surrendered U-boats
------------------------------------------
The Hargood was tasked with escorting a flotilla of six of the surrendered U-boats from Wilhelmshaven, Germany, to Lisahally, Northern Ireland.
The six U-Boats in the flotilla were: U 3008, U 2356, U 2351, U 2341, U 2336 & U 883.

See my website for further info and pictures.
If anyone has any further info please get in touch

Hello Lionfish,

Thank you very much for this!

I am sorry for my late reply as I thought any messages would come through as private messages with an email alert. I didn't understand the forum system.

Anyway, this is wonderful to see my uncle's U-1271.

I have ordered the clip.

Much appreciated,
max
