Schnellboote S130

Post by RF » Fri Jan 16, 2009 9:08 am

Members of the forum may be interested in a press article I saw in the Wolverhampton Express and Star last night.

A private collector (unamed) has acquired the frame of S130, which was involved in the action in 1944 where US landing craft engaged in D Day landing preparations were ambushed off Slapton Sands and some 700 US soldiers were killed, with a view to reconstruction and eventual use as an educational tool.

Their shoulders held the sky suspended;
They stood and Earth's foundations stay;
What God abandoned these defended;
And saved the sum of things for pay.

My grandfather served on various E-boats during the joint operations of 5th & 9th Schnellbootflotilla in the channel 1943-44, including the attack on Lyme Bay serving in S-138 with five other boats of the 5th and three of the 9th to participate, one of which S-130 was.
