Hello

I'm still chasing my important quarry, Buoy 4, but just stumbled across this reference to Buoy 2501 in

F├╝rbringer, Werner, FIPS: Legendary U-boat Commander 1915-1918, trans. & ed., Brooks, Geoffrey (1933; Leo Cooper, Barnsley 1999), p. 54

"It was decided to run the Straits between Dover and Calais at night because it was easier then to avoid the anti-submarine net barrage towed by enemy patrol vessels. The four u-boats put out in fine weather and effected a rendezvous at British buoy 2501 about 12 sea miles north of Calais."

Best wishes
Chris Heal
