Operation Albion

Post by Mark80439 » Wed Aug 12, 2015 10:59 pm

Anyone have any information (drawings, photos, etc) of the German steamer Corsika (Corsica?) used as a troop transport in Operation Albion in October 1917? My grandfather was on the vessel as it struck a mine during the landing.
Thanks

Sorry names are not available. But these are transport ship photos from official German sources, through the IWM.
