could a member identify this Räumbootflottille (Calais)
Hard to say given the period. For example, c. summer 1944 none of the R.-Flotille were based in Calais, although some of the boats likely operated from there. As of 1 June 1944;
9. Flotille was at Vlardingen
2. Flotille was at Dunkirk
4. Flotille was at Boulogne
8. Flotille was at Brugges
10. Flotille was at Ouistreham
14. Flotille was at Dieppe
So probably 2. or 4., but it could be any one of them. If we could see a hull number that would pin it down.
thanks, the date would be 1940-1941, preparation Ops Seelöwe
Interesting...I thought the camouflage was added later. If it was Calais in late 1940 and early 1941 they were probably 4. Flotille, R41-R52.
thanks again, the problem is that 4. Räumbootsflottille (Boulogne) had another scheme of camouflage at that time.
Ah, sorry about that. If it is the SEELOEWE period you have a limited number of choices, 1., 2., 3., or 11.
Wasn't 3rd flotilla in Calais for a little while.
3rd Flottilla had a deer head on the bow these don't,
So then you've narrowed it down to 1. or 2.
these were also at Calais end 1940;begin 1941
Sure, but they did also have a camo pattern similar to this.
