...and I know there are a few.

I am looking to find the locations of French warships at the time of the armistice in June 1940. I can piece together some of the units - Alexandria and Mers-el-kebir for example, together with a few others, but need to find the locations for all ships. Some ships in the UK for example are disappointingly described as being in Portsmouth and Devonport at the same time.... Jordan and Moulin's French Destroyers 1922-56 and French Cruisers 1922-1956 is pretty helpful but don't give the full picture.

Does anyone know a source for such a list please? I am particularly keen to know about the SS and smaller ships.

Conway’s All the World’s Fighting Ships 1922-1946 has numerous individual ship citations of status in June 40 but not as a consolidated “list”.

Thanks. I would prefer not to rely on Conways for this. Although I love the books 1906-1921 and 1922-1946 and consider these essential for WWII reading, I've found quite a few errors in these books and would not want to use them for individual ships detail work.

I've managed to piece together most ships - but need a decent source for French submarines....

Conways are really required materials....that said the 46 version came out very close to the end off WW2 (not near it at the moment) and had whole ships included that did not exist. Off the top of my head the BCs that the Alaskas were built to confront, and a third Crane CV. But I love those books and think I scored the 46 for like $35.

Oh well. Let's hope Jordan and Moulin bring out a French Submarines 1922-1956 book.
