Tirpitz AVKS report ?

Post by alecsandros » Tue Nov 26, 2013 1:46 pm

Does anybody know if Tirpitz AVKS report has been preserved somehow after the war ? And if yes, could it be available to the general public ?

I was told by a friend in Germany that it was on a list of micro filmed documents along with the Bismarck's AVKS report micro film, but that person also said "it was unavailable to me". So it may be a matter of someone getting to the archives sometime? I don't know if duplicate copys are in the US or British archives?

seems the piece had not survived, at least not in german archives.
