Operation "marigammasom"

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

on uboat.net I red about Operation Marigammasom, a commander training

in Gotenhafen in 1941/42 with Italian submarine Reginaldo Giuliani.

Unfortunately Gudmundur did not have additional informations.

 

I hope that someone in this forum can give me detailed informations about

this time or let me know where I can find informations and fotos in the net.

Which route took the boat to Gotenhafen ?

 

Where comes the word Marigammasom from ? It is not in Italian dictionarys.

 

Thanks in advance

UIT

Hi UIT!

how you can see in the link from Kashin, the R.Smg Giuliani was the school for the war in the atlantic for aur commander and crew. a war very different from the otther in the mediterranean sea.

 

MARIGAMMASOM comes from:

 

MARI = marina militare (Italian Navy)

GAMMA = the greek letter for "G" initial of Gotenhafen

SOM = SOMmergibile the italian translation of submarine

Hi Kashin,

 

thank your for the link, I will try translate this very informative side, but my knowledge

of the Italian language is poorest and so it will take times I think.

 

thanks for your kindness

Hi Totiano,

 

thank you very much for your explanation of this acronym.

 

The word Betasom is also an acronym I think ?

Is BETA the greek letter and stands for Bordeaux and SOM

for Sommergibile ?

 

Was Betasom only for the atlanticbound submarines operational

centre ?

How could the Italian submarines pass heavy guarded Gibraltar ?
