Thanks very much for all answers. I really feel good
All what i can find about the Solaas
I give here the comments from Jürgen Rohwer (edition 1999) and Busch & Röll (edition 2001)
Rohwer says, that the KTB of U-7 does not mention any attack on this day (29.09.1939).
Busch & Röll don't have a link between Solaas and U-7 in their book.
The Solaas was stopped by U-36 on 28.09.1939 but released (Rohwer ans Busch & Röll).
The Solaas sank on 29.09.1939 after a heavy explosion, possibly caused by a mine (Rohwer and Busch & Röll).
Maybe another reader can help to solve this ships final fate.
