    Hello gentleman. A while back I made a post displaying this original and unpublished photo of Grossadmiral Raeder and now looking at it more closely I'd like to have more background on it. Well the first thing I wanted to figure out if this photo was taken in; Kiel, Wilhelmshaven, Hamburg, Bremen, in France, ect... And secondly which really intrigued me is the very unusual boat in the background. I have done much research trying to find this boat and sometimes thinking I had it and then turning out It wasn't it. I'm still researching but decided to post on the forum and see if any of you have information to give. Best regards

    It is possibly one of the many hundreds of Vorpostenboote.

    Oh yes in my search of these vague boats I did come across the Vorpostenboote and also though It was one. But it does have some significant differences from a Vorpostenboote.

    As they were essentially converted trawlers and other coastal craft there was no specific type of VP-Boote so they existed in many different variations.

    I agree with hucks216. The big snag in trying to ID this boat is that the photo shows too little of the boat to make a certain ID. As for determining where the photo was made, the same problem exists. Interesting photo in any case. Dwight
