. . . .these picture came from a old German man that his father  a Kriegsmarine sailor was stationed at (the) Black sea in WW2 and I send you to a pic where you can see his father with among Romanian and German sailors, maybe you can tell me more about the picture and if Romanian sailors and km sailor where stationed together at Black Sea during WW2, in the cap tally you can see:APARAREA FIXA MARITIMA, can you search about what kind of branch in Romanian navy used this cap tally?


I assume there was some kind of Romanian Navy Coastal Artillery Units?

Many thanks for any forth coming information.

Kevin in Deva.

Judging by the size of the shell, I would say it's a 17 cm caliber battery.
