German WWII Patriotic Postcard, Kriegsmarine, Aviso Grille

Price:  $12.00
Item #42642

Original period manufacture. The official State Yacht for the Third Reich. Launched in 1934, and commissioned in 1935, she served as the official yacht until September 1939.

She served as a minelayer and patrol ship in the Baltic, until transferred to Norway where she ended the war. She was seized by the Royal Navy, then sold to private investors in 1947. She ended being moored in a New Jersey scrapyard in 1951, where she was plundered for souvenirs before being broken up for salvage. Reportedly her toilet is in a New Jersey auto shop.
