Hello to all
; a little more................
Camouflage patterns of German U boats in 1939.
While wandering on the net I found this other photo of the U 33 with cammo scheme. The author states that this scheme was testing in Spain but it was not effective. Now the only question to me is that the author puts the picture in Bremerhaven in 1937 and I've found two visits carried out by Flotilla Saltzwedel, one to Hamburg in December 1937 and the one registered in the Golden Book of Bremen in February 1939. The latter is close to the U-Bootwaffe's vast maneuver on May 1939 west of the Bay of Biscay and off the coast of the Iberian Peninsula. There took part 15 U boats (Type VIIA and IXA), a tanker, a cargo ship, a tender ship and command and control ship. I still biting the date of the visit ..................................
