Re: Luftwaffe Convoy ID Manual

That would be interesting to know since the Luftwaffe and Kriegsmarine were notoriously uncooperative. I would guess that the "Führungsstab (See)" (General Staff-Sea) of the RLM had a few naval officer attached to it. The word "Dwarslinie" (athwart line) is a nautical term :wink:

Re: Loss of the HMAS Sidney II

There is also a book on the HMAS Sidney affair by a member of the commission, Capt. Peter Hore. It is of interest to miniature ship collectors that the battle scenes are done with 1:1250 Navis-Neptun models from the Peter Tamm collection of Hamburg. http://www.amazon.de/Sydney-Cipher-Search-Solving-...

Loss of the HMAS Sidney II

The final official report of the sinking of the HMAS Sidney II 14 November 1941 was published in July 2009. It is important to note that there were no Austrialian survivors and eyewitness evidence is based on German POW statements as well as some postwar restatement. http://www.defence.gov.au/sydney...
