Original Feldpost / sailor's mail from WWII Marine Kleinkampfverband Unterseeboot (K-Verband U-Boot) Kampflot 265 / midget submarine with the Biber 265th Battle Fleet in Westfjord/Lofoten, Norway. With contents. The Biber (German for 'beaver') were tiny, single occupant subs that could be equipped with two torpedoes, on either side of the hull. Only 324 of these subs were delivered, and if they actually were able to start on their mission, most didn't return. I believe only one ship was sunk by the entire 'fleet'. This cover was written in March and somehow made it to Hamburg where it was finally postmarked on April 10, 1945. A very rare cover, especially with contents, from a German 'Kleinverband' boat.
