Thank you, Urs! I have seen that record in KTB Skl. Unfortunately, the document doesn't contain the details. Another problem is there lot of NARA rolls with German naval conferences in the records guide, and the number of the relevant roll is unknown. Quote: Miscellaneous operations and conferences (including prewar operational planning and German-Italian naval conferences), 1938-44:

Any details of the relevant conversations with Grossadmiral Raeder are interesting, and maybe the roll number in NARA with that conference. Best regards, Andrey

Hello Derek, yes, I reed the book in question. Have found some funny errors (partly pure fantasy as the story of the death of the admiral Kieseritzky). But as a start step his book is good, and well written. It seems the author using the on-line available KTBs such as KTB Skl and the English translation of the same KTB and some other. Apparently we haven't the published books about t

Hi Jerry and Charla, thank you for the info. Hardly 52 is CL93 as CL93 lays entirely on the land. It seems at least in some cases (it should be checked) Norm.Qu. were disguised L.Qu. But the key to decode from Norm.Qu to CLxxxx or L.Qu.xxxx still unclear. Best regards, Andrey

Hello! In the documents related to Black Sea U-boats (30.U-Fl.) term "Norm.Qu." is sometimes found. For example 12.Nov.1943 U19 received the order to occupy the Op.-Gebiet in Norm.Qu.5282, 5290, 5291, 5296, 5299, 5304, 5305, 5307, 5308 somethere off Caucasus coast. It is sertainly not usual Kriegsmarine Qu and not L.Qu. Is anything known about about that grid system? Best r
