 "S 9" and "S 11" in a harbour in the Baltic - Picture:Archives FŲrderverein 

We searched for information and we found it!

According the magazine Strandgut Nr. 49 the passenger steamship "KommandÝren" (543 BRT, built 1891), laid up after a stranding, was sunk in the harbour of Bergen/Norway by a torpedo hit on 29.03.1945. The firing was caused by a drunken crewmember of a German S-boat (supposedly "S 13"). 

The true story is described under:
