Right, your turn!


The Sovetskaja Ukraina was laid down in 1938 in Nikolaev at the Black Sea. When German troops captured Nikolaev on 18.08.1941, the ship was completed up to the main deck. It was only slightly damaged by the retreating Russian troops. As all of the ships plans were missing, it was not planned to continue the construction of the ship, instead some of the armor and secondary artillery was used for the fortification of Sevastopol. In 1943 the construction was continued with a low priority and when the Germans were forced out of Nikilaev in March of 1944, they destroyed the incomplete ship by explosives.

The message I sent to FAlmeida bounced back so to get this thread moving again: anyone is welcome to post the next question.

The neutrality regulations prohibited the resuppply operations by merchant ships to war ships or u-boats during the time of internement in neutral ports.
With connivance of the Spanich authorities some interned ships refuelled and provide provisions for U-boats during night hours in Spanish ports.
The question:
A-Name of the secret supply organisation that it directed the operation ?
B-Name the ships lying in Spanish ports ?
C-Name of Spanish ports ?

Cheers, Fernando
