CONFIDENTIAL REPORT 2G-21
S94
     
 
FORMER GERMAN SUBMARINE TYPE XXI
 
 
 
 
SALVAGE
 
     
 
SUMMARY
 
     
          The general information book specifies the following salvage equipment to be carried on board:  
 
77
  Draeger type lungs
3
  buoys and lines
4
  4-mater rubber boats
1
  3.3 meter rubber boat
57
  1-man rubber boats
2
  life buoys
 
          There is no way of checking the foregoing, as the equipment on board when the vessels arrived in the United States did not correspond to the specified equipment.  Among other differences, there were many inflatable life jackets on board, although none are listed in the general information book.  
          The type of equipment found aboard does not depart from that found on the X-B vessel.
