Fähre Fiume ebay
« am: 19 Oktober 2017, 21:46:25 »
Currently on ebay lots of pics showing Fähren and  a Polizei Gebirgsjäger unit active in the Fiume area. The Fähren are the same ones featuring in the well-known BA series. Some pics clearly show the "fish tank"on the Fähren I mentioned in an earlier post. I assume that the soldiers all belonged to SS-Pol.Rgt. Bozen :

Hello Arjan,
I started an initiative to identify the officers shown on some of these photographs, in order to identify the action shown and possibly find its traces in the war diaries. Please see "http://www.forum-marinearchiv.de/smf/index.php/topic,28878.msg327106/topicseen.html#new".
As far as you mention the "fishtank" it becomes clear now that this device was a foldable wind screen for sea and sky observations in strong winds. All these late ferries were usally commanded from the open deck on the superstructure. In order to be able to do so, speaking tubes down to the helmsmens place were added. You can identify them on several pictures.

Best regards to the Netherlands

Hi Otto, sorry I hadn't noticed your thread . As far as I'm concerned this thread can be deleted because it's quite redundant. I will see if I can come up with some answers regarding the unit(s) involved. I think that the Autoblinda (Panzerspähwagen) may have belonged to the Bozen Regiment but SS-Pol. Rgt. 18 was probably also involved in this action.


edit: in the mean time I have found confirmation that all the photos in question are not of SS-Pol. Rgt. 18 but rather of the Bozen Regiment :
