HORST, PAUL & GRAUER ORT

On 8.10.44 the submarine HMS VIVID sunk NW of Chios island, the concrete ship ACHILLES and what are generally mentioned as two tugs named PAUL and HORST.

Actually HORST was not a tug but one of a series of iron riverine vessels built by Ewald Benninghaus at Koln in the mid/late thirties. Most of them had a grt of 210-212 and some of them were taken in 1942/43 to the Black Sea and later in 1944 to the Aegean.
HORST was actually built in 1938.
I believe that PAUL (212 GRT) was a similar vessel, can anyone confirm?

Also, HMS SPORTSMAN sunk on 31.3.44 the GRAUER ORT generally recorded as a "sailing ship". She was also of 212 GRT. Maybe she was also a member of the same class of riverine vessels?
