I saw this picture on another forum and cannot identify the two ships closest to the camera. The smaller one has "MS2" on her bow.

Can anyone help with the ID?

Hello,
from left a Danish small fishing vessel by Marineheimwehr, a Danish mine clearing boat MS 2 and last M ... Danish minesweeper from MA 1, MA 4-MA 6 together with the German MRS NÜRNBERG.
May be in Danish water about 1945.

Are these Danish ships? All the light grey ones?

P 27 was a Danish patrol cutter, the former fishing cutter J.V. Nicolaisen

MS 2 Askø was a minesweeper of the MS class built in 1941.

The larger one is likely a minesweeper of the Søløven class.
