Ex Type 1X  S807, - 1 photo.

I extend my thanks to Mr. Klaus-Dieter Werth for providing information concerning this boat.

She is actually NOT a German type 1X, as I had originally thought, but was laid down in Holland 03-09-1939.
She was still incomplete when the Germans overran Holland in 1940, and was eventually completed and put into
service with the "Kreigsmarine" as UD5 on 26-04-1941.

She survived WW11 and was handed back to the Dutch in May 1945 when she was re-commissioned into their
Naval service as "S807".
