hello,

My name is Urs He▀ling. I'm 65 now and live in Hanover, Germany. I'm married, have two sons and two great grandchildren (the 3rd's on the way )

I served in the Federal German navy for 39 years, during the first half mostly in Fast Patrol Boats (CO twice).
After graduation from the US Naval Postgraduate School at Monterey, I went to the job of Human Factors Staff Officer in the Naval Armament Office. As there was nobody trained or willing to relieve me , I remained in that posting for 18 years, enjoying it very much and was, among other tasks, a member of the planning and working teams for the construction of the German frigates/corvettes of F 123, 124, 125 and K 130 classes.

Even before retirement, I did a lot of naval historical research and finally joined the team which provided the internet version of Prof. Rohwers famous "Chronology of the War at Sea 1939-1945" http://www.wlb-stuttgart.de/seekrieg/chronik.htm
My special interest - not unsurprising looking at my career - are the Kriegsmarine E-boats (Schnellboote).

For more than 10 years now, I've been a member and, lately, moderator in a very good German forum on naval history, as well, see http://forum-marinearchiv.de/

A thread in that forum led me to yours. I'm sincerely impressed and hope to gain new knowledge and contribute with my own.

greetings, Urs

You are very Welcome Urs .

You may want to visit the S130 Thread ......... She is currently undergoing a complete rebuild in a small shipyard here close to Plymouth . I know progress halted some time ago but will endeavour to post a progress report when I have made contact with the site.

Hello URS.
Welcome to the Forum(s). I am (was) member of the `Club' of U-373 which used to meet in Speicherz. No longer sadly.
Will be most interested to see any information that you have re the German Navy.
Have tried to `Log-in' to the MarineArchiv Forum, but do not seem to be able to - they will not accept my `name/activation/password' - most puzzled.
Look forward to seeing your contribution(s).

HI There
Welcome to the forum
I have a question for you
I believe the v100 rescued 24 survivors from the HMS Partridge on the 12/12/1917 and did they list their names
Kind regards Ian Mcleod

hi, Ian,

the official German publication "Der Krieg zur See" mentions only Lieutenant Grey by name.

The KTB (war diary) of 2nd torpedo boat flotilla does not mention names.

Unfortunately, I don't have the KTB of 3rd T-Half-Flotilla or of V 100.

greetings, Urs
