hi,

after two not too difficult questions, a really tough one (therefore, valid for one week only)

From December, 1941 to May, 1942, 3rd E-boat-flottilla carried out 24 mining operations (MT 1 - MT 24) East off Malta.

Q.: Which boat (only one) participated in all 24 ops ?

Regrettably, this cannot be solved from internet info, you have to have access to the war diary (KTB)

greetings, the pb

hi,

as there seem to be no volunteers, an easy question: which Kriegsmarine ship served longest after the war in an Allied navy ?

A Fregattenkapitän is the connecting factor behind these missions.
