    Default German Convoys

    Hi,

    A little off topic, but still RAF related.

    Trting to establish any German naval activity ( convoys, barge movement ) along the coast between The Hague and Knocke between Sept 7 - 9th 1940.

    Is there any web sites avialable ?

    TIA

    Dear Steve
    I do not know of any web sites.... however it is possible via a very long winded way to find the information you want if you can identify which Vorpostenflottille was in the area at the time. The 'war diary' for the Vorpostenflottille are held at the Bundesarchiv in Frieburg. Sadly these are not digitised, but there are paid researchers who can look up the appropriate documents. I have had amazing success with the war diaries of both Vorpostenflottille (Convoy escorts) and Flak batteries.
    Happy hunting

    A good place to start is here:

    Use Google/Translate.

    Dear Steve
    I'm not sure if this VP is close enough geographically?

    If you PM me I can put you in contact with the researcher I used in Freiburg. He worked wonders.
    Best wishes
