Also on 11 June 1917 the IJN Destroyer Sakaki was damaged by the KUK U 27 (Austrian) not the German U 27.

It still amazes me that Austria had ships/submarines...what ports did they use - presumable German ports?  :-\

Aha! Silly me - of course they would refer to the Med - didn't realize how much coastline they had - interesting - thanks Randi :)

AvastMH I am surprised that have never heard of the KUK Kaiserlich Und Koniglich Kriegsmarine Imperial and Royal Navy? Here are some books you should read that deal with it:
The Imperial and Royal Austro-hungarian navy Anthony Sokol
The Naval War in the Mediterranean 1914-1918 Paul G Halpern
The Battle of the Otranto Straits                            "

I'd never heard of it either - but then I am not interested in military history.
