Response to M.S. Tegelberg before 1942
Jacques wrote "It is quite an entertaining story but I still have a problem with the identity of the French Sloop. The book has 2 photographs clearly identifying her as a "Colonial Sloop" belonging to a class of 4 vessels built between 1931 and 1939 (DUMONT D'URVILLE,SAVORGNAN DEBRAZZA,D'ENTRECASTEAUX and LA GRANDIERRE - 2 000 tons,3 x 5.5", 4 x 40mm) No trace of a "FRANCOIS D'IBERVILLE anywhere. A false name perhaps?"
Hello to All,
This is my first post on this forum.
D'IBERVILLE was Indeed a "Colonial Sloop" Class belonging to a class of 9 vessels (DUMONT D'URVILLE, SAVORGNAN de BRAZZA, D'ENTRECASTEAUX, AMIRAL CHARNER, D'IBERVILLE, LA GRANDIERE, RIGAULT-de-GENOUILLY, BEAUTEMPS-BEAUPRE and BOUGAINVILLE). This Sloop like most other French Warships sustained a sad fate, as being scuttled at Toulon in 11/1942.
