Allright!

The Germans captured two (incomplete) Dutch cruisers in May 1940. What were the Dutch names of these two ships, and what were the German names for these ships?

Now a hard question.
A Kriegsmarine auxillery cruiser (HSK) sighted a battle ship and an aircraft-carrier in the near of Africa in a range of 7 miles, in the night.
But the carrier and the BB saw nothing.

Name of the HSK, the BB and the carrier???

A Google search:

http://www.google.de/search?hl=de&q=bat ... iser&meta=

And the sixth site has got the answer:

http://www.bismarck-class.dk/hilfskreuzer/atlantis.html

On this site:
Bismarck-class.dk wrote:A week after having narrowly missed being caught, while stopped, by the British battleship HMS Nelson and the aircraft carrier HMS Eagle, as they passed, a mere 7,000 yards astern, Atlantis used one of her new Arados to locate her next victim, the 4.530-ton British freighter Trafalgar, with a cargo of 4.500 tons of coal and two aircraft.
So, now my question:

The Germans captured 25 Italian submarines during World War II. They named them UIT-1 - UIT-25. How many of these boats were commissioned? And what were the Italian and Germans names of these boats?

Good luck!
