The What's New Archive
02:35 - Events on this day greatly improved
I've added two large new sections to the popular page Events on this day; U-boat departures and arrivals and U-boats at sea on this day. Both sections are fairly self-explanatory and show a vast new view on this date in question. Please remember that you can of course view any date of the year on this page.
