Re: References on Finnish Sub Vesikko & Italian CM Small Sub
Thank you very much for your response and for your help.
My main interest is in what color schemes the Vesikko was painted in other than the two-color one she is painted in as a museum.
I am also interested in knowing what differences there were between the Vesikko and the German Type II submarines, but that may be too much to ask.
I have no information about that article of Vesikko, but I have a Finnish book of Vesikko. Timo Merensilta:"Vesikko Suomenlahden hiljainen vartija" (Vesikko, Silent Watchman of the Gulf of Finland) It was published in 2009, of course in finnish but it has a 10 pages summary in english. All the captions are also in english. It has lot of photos and some drawings. Unfortunately my google search did not turn out any left in second-hand bookhops. Is there any specific information you are looking for that I could look from the book?
OK, I admit it, I like certain small submarines.
Can anyone direct me to good references on the Finnish submarine Vesikko, now a museum ship?
In particular, does anyone have a copy of an article cited in Wikipedia as "Atkinson, Krispen (August 2021). Osborne, Richard (ed.). 'Finnish Submarine Vesikko'. Warships: Marine News Supplement. 75 (8): 399–401"?
Lastly, does anyone know of a good article or other reference on the Italian CM small submarine class? I think only one was built during WWII.
Thanks very much!
