captured tanker DRESDEN
« on: 07 April 2024 08:50:12 am »

On September 26, 1944 the ML.836 captured off Chios Island in the Aegean the small German tanker DRESDEN.
In May 1946 the ship was handed over to Greece and renamed KRONOS.
According to Greek files, after her capture in 1944 she hoisted the British flag and was placed under the disposal of "Coastal Forces Base" being used to refuel a minesweeper flotilla. According to Greek sources she had been renamed ISLAY. However, during handing over in 1946 the name JELEY was recorded.

Can anyone provide more information on her 1944-1946 status and name?
