Per Chris Heal in his book "SOUND OF HUNGER",a petrol lighter moored along side of UC70 exploded when hit by a salvo from the British monitors that caused UC70 to sink. UC16 was also slightly damaged. Respectfully, Joe R

Thanks for shining much needed light on ANTINOUS, Oliver. Turns out the entry date of the meeting with U38 was on 1.10.16 instead of 1.09.16. typo? Respectfully, Joe

Michael, Are you ignoring the listing of ANTINOUS in the damaged section of Lloyds' War Losses? Sometimes the attacker didn't know he damaged the prey.

Hi Everyone, On 2 Sept. 1916 the steamer ANTINOUS was attacked and damaged by U38 K/Lt Max Valentiner commanding. The steamer is listed in the damaged section of Lloyd's war losses on page 247. She ia also listed in U38's KTB as steam unidentified on 2 Sept.1916. ANTONOUS should be listed in U38's successes as (D) damaged. Joe R

There were women and children in Tokyo, Kobe, Hiroshima and Nagasaki. I'm sure that there were women and children in Berlin,Hamburg,Dresden and Mainz. They were at Wounded Knee and My Lai. The women were in Burqas in Kabul and Kandahar. Many more were killed at Stalingrad,Moscow and Leningrad. Whether in comic books or history books, we must never forget, WAR IS HELL Joe R

Chris, Looking eagerly to the release of the book. Why did you choose the Gerth brothers to write about? There were other brothers that both became uboat commanders and were or are more well known. Respectfully, Joe R

RETRACTION Stollenz NEVER served on SMS von der Tann! I confused Stollenz with two other officers who in fact did serve on that ship at Jutland, one of whom WAS wounded. Utke and Plum are the officers. Plum was the one wounded. Mea Culpa Joe R

Some how I left out the most interesting part of Stollenz's life. While serving as II torpedo officer on SMS von der Tann during the "death ride" in Battle of Jutland, was injured by enemy fire. He was the only officer to be hurt on von der Tann. Joe

Chris you'll notice that a great many served in WWII and attained flag admiral rank. An equal number lesser ranks and some very high rank in the Luftwaffe. Extremely dedicated and patriotic men! Joe

Noticed that you have included K/L Unrug to the Commanders list. He Commanded UB23,UC11 and UC28. He also was flotilla chief MED. Division. More can be found on de.wikipedia.org.. Respectfully, Joe R

23. Re: U25
The Commanders list contains many commanders that made ZERO patrols. It is not consistant. When the list omits the men that surrendered the uboats to the Brits on a dangerous war time mission ( remember the Armistice had not been signed and a state of war still exists) It is a great disserve. They DID sail across the North Sea. What is needed is a definition of a the word Commander. I tata

25. U25
Looks like U25 had three combat patrols in the first half of 1915 and never used again during the war. Was she used as a school boat? I ask because have found KptLt Emil Heusinger von Waldegg ,born 22 Oct. 1880 and died 8 Dec. 1966 at Bad Godesberg. He was Commander of U25 from 23 Oct. 1917 to 29 Dec. 1917. Should he be added to the Commanders list? If not ,why not. Respectfully, J

Thank-you for posting the list of the men that died on U154. I see that the 8 men that died in the gun duel with Bombala are listed. The doctor, Otto Hofmann, is listed but no inducation that he was transferred from U153. The four (4) sailors also transferred to U154 are probably listed but not identified. Which ones are they? And shouldn't SubLt Eric Hugh Allen PoW be listed as killed

Bombala did inflict a certain amount of punishment on one of the German Boats. U154 suffered an explosion on its deck,probably from a splinter from one of Bombala shells igniting a German shell,resulting in the death of eight German submariners and seriously wounding five more. The battle lasted 2 1/2 hours. U153 had a doctor on board on this cruise and U154 requested the doctor be transfer

Hi Mike, !. I haven't trusted the USN since the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution in 1964! 2. My Source is the Commerce Department not the US NAVY. 3. Again 3 vessels named ON TIME are listed thru June 1918. In list June 1919 only two (2) appear and would be in port. 4. /catalog.hathitrust.org/Record/007919581 5. Both of us know newspapers are a poor source. Joe

Upon further research: There were (3) fishing vessels listed in the New England area for June 30 1917 thru June 30 1918. One is missing from the list June 30 1918 thru June 30 1919. ON210974 ON TIME 8 tons gross built 1912,Osterville, Mass with home port as Vineyard Haven, MASS. A KTB can contain errors. Not keeping track of boats that are being sunk is not unusual.
