  1. After a long thinking , I decided that I would not be posting any posts about the history and events of the Polish navy at Minor Nation Navies. I took a place where you could talk about other fleets that you should also mention, for example, the navy of Romania, Finland, Sweden, Norway and Greece. I hope we will start these topics again in Minor Nation Navies.
  2. It took a while but I added links to interviews Dziękuję Gerrion I thought the idea of Mignonette was good and I added links.
  3. I corrected. I corrected. I corrected and I changed on Britain Commonwealth. I agree with you Admiral Korky. Some books give different conflicting information about the class of ships and reminds Gordian Knot.

Ships that can be this ship are: HSK "Komet", HSK "Michael", HSK-8 "Kormoran" or HSK "Thor" But there are only two ships that have torpedo boats and which fit the description: HSK "Komet" and MS "Bielsko" /HSK "Michael" both were not war ships in 1939 Both ships fear and terror on the seas and are the most famous Handelsstörkreuzer. Both has enough deck for golf driving range mats. Both ships has a lot of stairs. Both Easy access to motorboat. Both host has a well stocked galley/kitchen. Both hosts a lot of functions. Both Pretty ship. Both ship is equipped to handle such speeds. HSK "Komet", HSK "Michael", HSK-8 "Kormoran" or HSK "Thor" visited Japan during WW2
