Of course nothing ever goes according to plan. Hans Goebler Iron Boats Steel Hearts was assigned to the zentrelle dive station manning the critical valves-tree behind the hatch ladder as he was competent. On one dive, as I recall, his arm got 'caught' and was unable to close a critical valve...threatening to plunge the boat below safe levels. Fortunately an alert officer turned the valve. I suffered similarly one time hanging my sleeve on a window handle simply exiting my eighteen wheeler nearly breaking my arm...plan 'A' oft goes awry. I have often wondered how many U-boats such as Endrass' and Prien's simply died in a dive accident under similar streß dive mishaps...It had to have happened.
