WWI Submarines at Helgoland

Post by russ.case » 08 Oct 2020 00:57

Hello Experts,

I would be most appreciative if anyone could tell me the numbers of the submarines operating from Helgoland or around Helgoland (based elsewhere) during WWI.

If possible, I am looking for a particular submarine that was operating off the coast of Helgoland on or around 10 October 1917. I have already ruled out U25 and UB148.

Thank you.

So far nothing in the I, III and V Flotillas for being around Helogland on Oct. 17, 1917 using Spindler vol. 4

As an FYI, the large U-Kreuzer submarines were under a separate command. Did not check those. Will do so a bit later today.

Nothing regarding the above noted. Should mention the IV Flotilla based out of Emden showed no activity around H on that date.

I read where the British tried a submarine trap operation with hydrophone equipped trawlers, DDs, mined nets, etc in early October 1917 in the Dogger Bank area along a common route used by Ger. submarines. That would be quite a bit west of Helgoland.
