Hello Joe,

Pardon the delay. (Traveled a great deal lately) I have attack data for a number of E class subs. Create a separate thread?

Mate,

I was given Ole Nikolajsen's book "Ottoman Aviation" and I found a mention of the attack on Sinop pages 203-204.

"A strong Russian flotilla was spotted near Sinop in mid July and before countermeasures could be taken 2 Turkish lighters carrying oil had been seized
and 22 small coastal vessels destroyed. During this attack on Sinop Russian seaplanes dropped leaflets urging, in German and Turkish, people to surrender."

Sorry but no other details given, either a date, but only July 1917

Cheers

S.B
