Capt Von Trapp

In October 1922, William Halsey Jr. was the Naval Attaché at the American Embassy in Berlin, Germany. One year later, he was given additional duty as naval attaché at the American Embassies in Christiania, Norway; Copenhagen, Denmark; and Stockholm, Sweden. He then returned to sea duty, again in destroyers in European waters, in command of USS Dale and USS Osborne. Upon his return to the U.S. in 1927, he served one year as executive officer of the battleship USS Wyoming.

“Admiral Halsey notified me He had to have a berth or he couldn’t get to sea?” is a Paul McCartney and Wings song about Uncle Albert and Admiral Halsey seeming to help a pregnant lady with one in the oven have a birth somewhere if he himself is going to get a command.

Hidden Identities and Three Children missing and names and ages changed

Captain Sir Mansfield George Smith-Cumming KCMG CB (1 April 1859[3] – 14 June 1923) was a British naval officer who served as the first chief of the Secret Intelligence Service (SIS) and died in office soon before he was to retire.

At the outbreak of WWI he was able to work with Vernon Kell and Sir Basil Thomson of the Special Branch to arrest twenty-two German spies in England. Eleven were executed, as was Sir Roger Casement, found guilty of treason in 1916. During the war, the offices were renamed. The Home Section became MI5 or Security Service, while Cumming’s Foreign Section became MI6 or the Secret Intelligence Service. Agents who worked for MI6 during the war included Augustus Agar, Paul Dukes, John Buchan, Compton Mackenzie and W. Somerset Maugham.

Admiral Sir Hugh Francis Paget Sinclair, KCB (18 August 1873 – 4 November 1939), known as Quex Sinclair, was a British intelligence officer. He was Director of British Naval Intelligence between 1919 and 1921, and he subsequently helped to set up the Secret Intelligence Service (SIS, commonly MI6) and GCHQ.

Hugh Slinclair came Director of Naval Intelligence in February 1919 and Chief of the Submarine Service in 1921. He became the second director of SIS in 1923. He was promoted vice-admiral on 3 March 1926 and full admiral on 15 May 1930. Sinclair also founded GC&CS, later to be known as GCHQ in 1919.

Ties to Admiral Halsey and the Queen of Romania at that time

Was it Prince Albert’s out of wedlock births of Norma Jean and Glorian Gainey headed to North Carolina to be born by Maria Kutschera of the Convent?

In the German Language version of her musical based on her notes Maria Kutschera bits and apple ten seconds later slides down a bannister with her legs spread and lands dropping her bible on the floor as she falls in front the Nuns.

The forkhead box protein 2 (FOXP2) was the first gene to be implicated in a developmental disorder of speech and language (Lai et al. 2001). Identified as the “speech and language gene” by Drs Simon Fisher and Anthony Monaco following molecular studies of 15 individuals in the “KE family” [who live in London and match the number of Royals] who suffered from speech-language delays (Hurst et al. 1990), FOXP2 is now known to play an essential role in normal speech development. Located on Chromosome 7 (Fisher et al. 1998; Lai et al. 2000, 2001), FOXP2 is not only implicated in speech-language delays but also has a function in regulating a large number of downstream target genes associated with common forms of language impairment (Vernes et al. 2008).

It is associated with dry throats and digestive disorders my mother and experienced, in particular choking on food liek say artichokes or meats or anything dry. Drinking water helps. Writing on paper tends to be clipped too though not the same problems in speaking. ADHD does have often have rapid speech. I suggest Prince Albert was of the KE Family that was studying the gene and hiding its fairly obvious presence and affects.

Torpedoes nor rights to them were the issue of the Von Trapp singers but familial connections revolving around meeting each other and what became of the figures in history like Franz Kutschera and the Buchenwald concentration camp and Himmler creating a bunker in the Von Trapp home in Salzburg Austria are the issue.

‘Success has many fathers, while failure none. ‘

Robert Whitehead (3 January 1823 – 14 November 1905) was an English engineer who was most famous for developing the first effective self-propelled naval torpedo.

He was born in Bolton, England, the son of James Whitehead, a cotton-bleacher, and his wife Ellen Whitehead née Swift. He trained as an engineer and draughtsman, and attended the Mechanics’ Institute, Manchester.

The United States Navy started using the Whitehead torpedo in 1892 after an American company, E. W. Bliss, secured manufacturing rights.

The Whitehead torpedo was the first self-propelled or “locomotive” torpedo ever developed.[a] It was perfected in 1866 by Robert Whitehead from a rough design conceived by Giovanni Luppis of the Austro-Hungarian Navy in Fiume. is the principal seaport and the third-largest city in Croatia also known as Rijeka

During the 19th century, an officer of the Austrian Marine Artillery conceived the idea of using a small boat laden with explosives, propelled by a steam or an air engine and steered by cables to be used against enemy ships; his papers came into the possession of Captain Giovanni Luppis upon his death. Luppis had a model of the device built; it was powered by a spring-driven clockwork mechanism and steered remotely by cables from land. Dissatisfied with the device, which he called the “coast-saver”,[10] Luppis turned to Robert Whitehead, who then worked for Stabilimento Tecnico Fiumano, a factory in Fiume.[8] In about 1850 the Imperial Austrian Navy asked Whitehead to develop this design into a self-propelled underwater torpedo.

One of the 7 Von Trapp children singing with Franz Kutchera in Central Euopean play-houses for Nazim

After graduating from high school at 15, orphan Maria Kutschera ran away to stay with a friend, with the intent to become a tutor for children staying at nearby hotels. Later Nazi General Franz Kutschera was her legal gaurdian. Because she looked so young, no one took her seriously. Finally, a hotel manager asked her to be the umpire for a tennis tournament. Although she did not know what an umpire was and had never played tennis, she took the job.

From this job, she saved enough money to enter the State Teachers College for Progressive Education in Vienna, where she also received a scholarship. She graduated from there at age 18 in 1923.

In 1924, she entered Nonnberg Abbey, a Benedictine monastery in Salzburg, as a postulant, intending to become a nun.

Marriage – Maria was asked to teach one of the seven children (Maria Franziska) of widowed naval commander Georg von Trapp in 1926 thus she left the Convent. [Was the British tied Von Trapp doing a favor for the allies?]

Con Trapp’s first wife, Agathe Whitehead, had died in 1922 from scarlet fever. Eventually, Maria began to look after the other children (Rupert, Agathe, Werner, Hedwig, Johanna and Martina), as well as the one Von Trapp child she was tutoring.

7 Plus 3 Equals 10

I asset that Maria Kutschera before she moved in with Capt Von Trapp was pregnat, left the convent and moved to North Carolina. Her children were separated at birth, Norma Jean taken by Joseph Kennedy Sr into an orphanage near RKO, Glorian Gainey in North Carolina under an assumed identity as daughter of Festus Gainey who seemed a real person though died when my mother was 9 years old.

The Real von Trapps

Georg von Trapp, born in 1880, became a national hero as a captain in the Austrian navy during World War I. He commanded submarines with valor and received the title of “Ritter” (knight), and later baron, as a reward for his heroic accomplishments. Georg married Agathe Whitehead, the granddaughter of Robert Whitehead, the inventor of the torpedo.

In 1912. They had seven children together:
Rupert, 1911
Agathe, 1913
Maria, 1914
Werner, 1915
Hedwig, 1917
Johanna, 1919
Martina, 1921

After World War I, Austria lost all of its seaports, and Georg retired from the navy. His wife died in 1922 of scarlet fever. The family was devastated by her death and unable to bear living in a place where they had been so happy, Georg sold his property in Pola (now Pula, Croatia) and bought an estate in Salzburg.

Those children were asked by Maria Kutschera’s uncle and gaurdian to sing for the Nazis which they did until 1936 when the decided to flee Nazism and Salzberg Austria for North Carolina.

The Three Unnamed Children

It is said Maria and Capt Von Trapp had three children of their own but did not fit well into semi-fictional biographical musical. These children were about the time the met in 1925-1927 time period as Maria Kutschera was leaing the Convent pregnant and sent Captain Von Trapp or became pregnant afterwards.

Ed Donegan asserts Capt Von Trapp was part of a plan along with the British to get these children out of Germany and they were out of wedlock Windsors with FOXP2 and included Marilyn Monroe and Glorian Donegan.

The proof for that is very weak but stronger proof is that because of this Glorian Donegn and her secret identity were used for illegal genetics studies including Barrack Obama Jr for Indonesia and is tied to the many assassinations that occurred in the early to late 1960’s.

The Real History Behind “The Sound of Music”

The von Trapps married more than a decade before they fled Austria.

Unlike in the film when they wed as the Nazis were taking control of Austria in 1938, 47-year-old Georg von Trapp and 22-year-old Maria wed more than a decade earlier on November 26, 1927.

Due to the altered time-frame, none of the three children that the captain and Maria had together appeared in the movie version along with the seven children from the captain’s first wife.

[Ed Donegan asserts the Capt and Maria Kutchera did not have three children together in 1926. They were by Maria Kutchera leaving the Convent pregnant and having her children with Jospeh Kennedy Sr and Admiral Halsey help in the USA with the names changed and Glorian Donegan (knea Gainey) was one of them in North Carlina in Dean Rusk underground railroad.]

Daughter Rosmarie was born in 1929 and Eleonore arrived in 1931. The birth of son Johannes in Philadelphia in January 1939, months after the family left Europe, brought the number of von Trapp children to 10.

The names and ages of the real von Trapp children were changed for the film.

In actuality, the eldest von Trapp child was not 16-going-on-17-year-old Liesl, but Rupert, who was born in 1911 and a practicing physician by the time the family fled Austria in 1938. Liesl wasn’t even Liesl. In the film, all the names of the von Trapp children were changed.

WWI U-boat commanders

Georg Ritter von Trapp

When I commit U-Boat atrocities in international waters against foreign shipping I always choose the Whitehead Mark 1 Torpedo.

I liked the submarine and torpedo system in Torpedo School so much I married Whitehead’s granddaughter while I was there.

Lieutenant Georg Ritter von Trapp and Agathe Whitehead about 1910

Born: 4 Apr 1880  Zara (Zadar), Croatia 
Died: 30 May 1947  Stowe, Vermont, USA 


On 17 April 1915, Trapp took command of SM U-5. He conducted nine combat patrols in U-5, and sank two enemy warships. One was the French armored cruiser Léon Gambetta, sunk at 39°30′N 18°15′E on 27 April 1915, 25 kilometres (13 nautical miles; 16 miles) south of Cape Santa Maria di Leuca. In hunting and sinking Gambetta, Trapp achieved a notable success as commander of the first-ever underwater nighttime (and only the second) submarine attack on a vessel in the Adriatic.[3] Just over three months later, he sank the Italian submarine Nereide at 42°23′N 16°16′E on 5 August 1915, 250 metres (270 yd) off Pelagosa (Palagruža) Island.[11] He also captured the Greek steamer Cefalonia off Durazzo on 29 August 1915. Some sources incorrectly credit Trapp with sinking the Italian troop transport Principe Umberto,[12] which resulted in the greatest loss of life in any submarine attack in World War I, but the ship was actually sunk by U-5 under another commander, Friedrich Schlosser (1885-1959).[13]

Trapp was transferred to the SM U-14, the former French submarine Curie, which had been sunk and salvaged by the Austro-Hungarian Navy.[14] He conducted ten more war patrols in the much larger submarine, attacking merchant ships instead of warships. Between April 1917 and October 1917, U-14 sank 11 Allied merchant ships under Trapp’s command.

In May 1918, he was promoted to Korvettenkapitän (equal to Lieutenant commander) and given command of the submarine base at Cattaro in the Gulf of Kotor. However, Austria-Hungary’s defeat in World War I also led to the Empire’s collapse. The territory of the Austro-Hungarian Empire was divided among seven countries, with the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes keeping most of the seacoast. The Republic of German-Austria was landlocked and no longer had a navy, putting an end to Trapp’s naval career.

War record

Trapp’s patrols in U-5 and U-14 made him the most successful Austro-Hungarian submarine commander of World War I, sinking 11 Allied merchant ships totaling 47,653 GRT and 2 Allied warships displacing a total of 12,641 tons.

11 ships sunk with a total of 47,653 GRT, 2 warships sunk with a total of 12,641 tons,1 ship taken as prize with a total of 1,034 GRT

U-boat Commands

k.u.k. U6 1 Jul 1910  –  24 Jun 1913
k.u.k. U5 22 Apr 1915  –  10 Oct 1915
k.u.k. U14 14 Oct 1915  –  13 Jan 1918


Georg Ritter von Trapp was a successful U-boat commander that had been fascinated by U-boats since the early 1900s and transferred to the U-boat force in 1908. He took his first command, U 6, in 1910.

During the war he took his U-boats on 19 patrols and ended the war as commander of the Austrian U-boat base at Kotor (Cattaro, now in Montenegro).

He was married twice and had a total of 10 children. After economic disaster in 1935 he was left without his wealth inherited from his former wife, Agathe and his second wife Maria started organizing sining arrangements to provide for the family. The family, opposed to the annexation of Austria and Nazi influence, fled Austria to Italy and then to the USA in May 1938.
