And while we discuss these units, the son of Captain Hans Langsdorff, Joachim, was listed as missing on 20 December 1945 and later declared as killed.

6 years to the day that his father committed suicide in Buenos Aires after scuttling Graf Spee.

Biber 90 is one of 324 Bibers built for K-Force in 1944. It was built in three sections bolted together, with the rear section holding the 32 hp Opel-Blitz Otto automobile engine. The engine gave a surface range of 100 nautical miles at 6.5 knots and the three torpedo battery troughs Type 13 T 210 and a 13 hp electric torpedo motor gave a submerged range of 8.6 nautical miles at 5.3 knots plus 8 nautical miles at 2.5 knots. Armament comprised two G 7e electric torpedoes or two mines. It was one of three Bibers launched from the canal at Hellevoetsluis in late December 1944. It was found sinking 49 miles (79 km) NE of Dover on 29 December 1944, its crewman had failed to properly close the engine exhaust system and he died from resultant carbon monoxide poisoning. HMS Ready took it in tow and, even when it sank close to Dover harbour entrance, the Royal Navy raised it and subjected it to extensive trials. The pilot of Biber 90 was Joachim Langsdorff, the son of Captain Hans Langsdorff of the ill-fated Graf Spee. The story of the development of the Biber, and, in particular, the capture of the Biber 90 can be read in more detail in the IWM Review No 4 (1989)
