Hello!

I have several reports from Pionier units about the crossings. At the moment I don´t have too much time to look.

This is what I found fast.
The mass of 65.Inf.Div. used a Gierfähre (Ferry) of 3./Pi.Btl.114 (Platoon Fw.Hofmann) and a Marinefährpram at Sermide - Castelmassa.
The 305.Inf.Div. used a ferries at Bergantino and at Moglia around 23.April 1945.
The 95.Inf.Div. mainly used the ferries at Ostiglia, Benedetto, Luzzara and Guastalla.
Thats it for the moment.

hope this helps and feel free to ask more,
Christoph
