hi, Waleed,

Yes! ... and, indeed, it was fun to wait and look ...

My only problem is that due to global warming the iceberg gets smaller and smaller ...

Now, the torch is back in your worthy hands ...

The oldest admiral to see active service in the Kriegsmarine. Who is he?
P.S. For now I won't say what rank he held (I used admiral as a generic term, it could be any of the admirals ranks!).

Since no one answered in 5 days, the answer is Konteradmiral Hans Seebohm.
The quiz thread is open.
