Title says it all
With the release of AG's lightship due anytime we now have the happy problem of just where to put them
Does anyone know any historical lightship locations during WW2 ?

Looks like a lot of info on the first link (USCG),. I havn't checked out all the links, but I bet there are a few more paths to follow from those!.
On the second site, there's even a map showing European stations, but its pretty small scale and isn't specifically WW2 era!
Every little helps, eh?;)

Going to be a question of balance as nearly all lightships were removed from station during WW2
The American ones replaced by buoys in 42
Can place some neutral ones such as Sweden and Ireland and some around the US till 42
