Platon,
I am having trouble finding the reference to the U-boat liaison officer, but National Archives file HW 18/161 ‘German naval communications 1942 Feb 06-1943 Nov 16’, (ZWTG 1-50) gives multiple accounts of German liaison or communication staff with their own Enigma equipment on Italian destroyers in the Med. There are also Italian personnel on German ships and on merchant ships. The reason for the German “W/T Petty Officer” being aboard the Italian destroyer “Da Recco” in June and July of 1942 is in connection with fighter escort cover for convoys to North Africa. Also, in October, the 6th German W/T Trupp was aboard Folgore and the 3rd aboard Pigafetta escorting the ‘Sestriere’ convoy.

Although I haven’t yet found it, the reference to a KM liaison officer aboard an Italian submarine also fitted very well with N Africa convoy protection, although (from memory) it was a little later. I will send you a PM when (if?) I can find the reference.

Regards,

Bruce
