Does anyone have a list of craft, details on armament and pictures of any of the boats the Greek Partisans used?

Bulk of data came out from a couple of Greek articles and a russian page all floating in the web.
I should stress that's a big "obscure page" of naval WW2 warfare i would further research. An interesting point it's the biggest naval clash between German and Greek (ELAN) partisans is 25 September 1944: while Greek sources indicate a clash with bigger German warships, actually the German apparently lost an auxiliary patrol boat. Either sunk or even captured (this means a conflict of sources, if the mainstream Greek version doesn't mention the capture). I will write more in details when i gather extra info.
PS: I should stress we are also speaking of the communist ELAN/ELAS partisan. There were other not-communist partisan Greek groups but i have no idea if they made their own flotillas.
