hi,

Picture from EBAY.

I have looked at this picture for many hours now,
i think i have solved the mystery boat on left.

The boat in front with the Turmumbau II,U 518(Friedrich-Wilhelm Wissmann),this was the easy boat.

The boat on left,U 530(Kurt Lange).

Both boats returning from an unsuccessful patrol,
arrival in Bordeaux on 03-07-1943.

Have a look.

my best regards,

Ron.

Hi there,

good job as far as U 518 is concerned. However, the boat in the background is U 180. Photograph taken during destroyer escort on 1 or 2 July 1943. Anyway, very nice pic indeed!

Best wishes

Axel

hi guys,

I am looking at these two IX`s for many weeks now,and i have NO idea.

picture 1.
Image

picture 2.

I think this is the same boat,but i am not sure.
Image

picture 3.

Same location as shown in picture 1,we see here an He 115 seaplane and a 8,8 cm deck gun.
Image

I think this is Horten or Trondheim(Norway),my best guess........U 501 Hugo Förster.

Any thoughts about these two boat(s).


my best regards,

Ron.
