Default Swedish Warships

I recently bought some postcards which I might upload when I get time.

Amongst them were two of Swedish warships - Jacob Bagge which I think looks like a old cruiser and Gavle - possibly a post war corvette??

I show them here in case they are of interest.

The Jacob Bagge and her surviving sister, by 1940, were rated as depot ships. Main guns were 2-4.7". Originally a class of 6, rated as torpedo gunboats.

There was no destroyer, that I can find by that name, but she appears to be one of the 4 unit Goteborg class carrying 3-4.7" and 6-21" TT (Stockholm, Karlskona and Malmo being the other 3). Class was built mid to late 30s; typically very modern looking Swedish warships.

Nice pics! DFO

There were in fact six of the Göteborg class; in addition to those mentioned above, Norrköping and Gävle were members of the class - the latter wore pendant number "9". The photo shows her as an ASW frigate after her 1961 modernisation.

DFO:

Small correction if I may - there was in fact a destroyer named Gavle and as you suggest, she was the last member of the six ship Goteberg Class, built in the mid-1930s to early 1940s.

In addition to the names you list above, there were Norrkoping and Gavle.

I was under the impression that a Swedish officer had passed the sighting information to the British Naval Attache in Stockholm rather than that it had been derived from a radio intercept. What is your authority for this version?

good morning, Patroclus,

I'm sorry but I can't recall that source in the moment.

It may well be that it happened in the way you described.

Either way, the GOTLAND-originated info was vital.

greetings, Urs
