This post is a help for Marcel Kares. Here is the content.

I am looking for photos and information about Czech riverine armored minelayers OMm 35 and OMm 36. On March 1939 they were captured by Germany (german name FM-1 and FM-2) and in 1940 were sold these very good riverine ships to Romania. After capitulation of Romanian Danube division on 26. August 1944 they were handed to Soviet Danube fleet.
I attach 2 photo and a drawing that I have.
Thanks for your help.
Marcel Kares from Czech Republic.

Hello.

No information about second the biggest ex-Czech rivering military ships? Any information in Romanian books, magazines, archives or private collections?
Probably eternal mystery.

Marcel. :(

I found something in a book:

"
* Cinci salupe de patrulare pe Dunare, construite in Cehoslovacia, sunt aduse la Turnu Severin la 20.04.1940 si sub comanda aspirantilor Stoian Ilie, Ionescu Ion, Popescu Vlad Greaca, Mehedinti Dumitru si Plesoianu Dumitru, vor fi imediat trimise pe sectoarele de frontiere ce le-au fost repartizate."

Source: Viceamiral ® Victor Bogdan, "Marina romaneasca in drama anului 1940; neutralitate si nonbeligeranta", from vol. VII of "Veterani pe drumul onoarei si jertfei, ultimile marturii 1940-1945", Editura Academiei de Inalte Studii Militare, Bucuresti - 2002.

It is about some riverine patrol small ships, from Cehoslovacia via Germany in 1940. I think MaxFax can translate in a better english then mine.
