Heya peeps,

 

I'm looking for anything and everything on these two German war reparation ships given to the US. I'm almost absolutely certain that the USN, like the NavTechJap and the Naval Tech. Mission to Europe documents, will have information in great detail about the two of them and if anyone has any digitalized copies to share with me I'd love to see them.\

 

Thanks!

 

P.S. if anyone happens to have information on the Type 1939 "Elbing-class" Fleet Torpedo Boats (of which T-36 is apart of) please get with me to share.

The T-36 was sunk 5 May 1945, damaged by a mine near Swinemünde and sunk by Soviet bombing.  The T-35 was seized by the U.S. and designated DD 935.

T-35 was part of the 5th T-Flottila, T35 only operated in the Baltic Sea where it supported the retreating German army units. Handed over to the British on 06.07.1945. Given to the US for trials on 11.07.1945 and renamed as DD 965 . Transferred to France in 1947 as spare part reserve for other Flottentorpedoboote 1939. It was scrapped in October 1952.

Looking for something slightly more comprehensive.

This link will take you a site with several photos that were taken by the US Navy during trials at Boston. There isn't much documentation but the photos I thought were interesting.

Everyone wants a set, but I only have 3 and 2 of them are useless - small arms and electrical fuses - and the third is machinery shaft packing.
