Re: MTBs 634, 637, 638 and 667

Maybe they captured some other type of the ship. Because, as I know, neither one E-boat (Schenllboot) was captured on Adriatic during 1944. All E-boats on Adriatic was captured (they capitulate) on 1st May 1944. I will try to see all my files which ship was captured by MTB-634 on Adriatic in 1944. B...

It think that the time on this photo is May 1945 when Germans capitulate on Adriatic.
Is on the back of photos some description?

Re: MTB 638

They have base on island of Vis in Adriatic in village called Komiža. But this is not Komiža. Later (from November 1944) they have bases on island of Ist in Adriatic and in town of Zadar and Ancona. Maybe it is Ancona.

Re: Battle near island of Vir

In 50` remains of the German ships are taken to the breaker 's yards but many part remains on the bottom. Among them lots of antisubmarine mines, 88 mm, 37 mm and 20 mm grenades and lots of 7,9 mm bullets.

On the picture You can see detonation of one antisubmarine mine few years ago.
