HI Picture 22c has two light sources so St Nazaire access tunnel is likely. If so boat is one of the following U 551,U 552,U 553 and U 567.
Nice pictures.

hi Pikap,

3)U 213 is correct.It looks like the day when she was launched,24-07-1941.
The anchor used for that occasion is allready hanging on her bow.

What do you think of this.

U 216,launched on 23-10-1941.

Hi Ron,

I`ve seen this picture of U 213 in a book.

12) is not U 373 because of free flooding vents don`t match.

Regard
Piakp

Hi Pikap,

Books are not always an reliable source,i have almost 200 books regarding the WWII U-Boats in my archive,
and in every one them,there is atleast one or more mistakes(new and old books),giving the U-Boats a wrong ID.

Exept Axel`s books,he is the most reliable source on the planet.I am so happy he is here.

12)I was allready aware of that,thanks to bring up to my attention.


my best regards,

Ron.
