Default U 112 Type IXB 1940/2020 - 3rd War Patrol

Started a new career in August 2019, to commemorate the beginning of WWII, 80 years ago ...

KTB - U 112


3rd War Patrol


Thursday, 3 October until Thursday, 10 October 1940 - St.Nazaire - Penhoét Shipyard

Shipyard Overhaul.

Crew Changes:

During the stay in St.Nazaire, the Warrant Machinist-E was killed in an accident (unofficially, he was killed in a bar fight). An adequate replacement could not be found in time, so, we will have to leave on our next patrol with only the Diesel Warrant Machinist.

A Diesel Fireman 1cl. was transferred to another Uboat and replaced with another Diesel Fireman 1 cl., on his first post-training deployment.

Also, a Boatswain’s Mate 2cl. A/A Specialist, was newly assigned to our boat, on his first post-training deployment. Together with the A/A Training our XO received, we have been able to strengthen our overall A/A expertise of the crew.

Default E.Morgersen patrol 20 October 1940.

Captain E.Morgesen.
Departed on 20 October1940 from St.Nazaire, with the aim of patrolling the AM41 grid.
21,22,23, nothing new happens. The morale is always high, thanks to the Doc who is really good at keeping men busy heart and mind and us too.
October 24th the crew begins to get bored, but the excitement returns when we reach our destination. 10.36 pm the sea becomes rough.
October 25th the sea is always rough. The doctor begins his work with some men injured during service. Nothing important.
25th October at 12.36 pm a cargo ship is sighted in the distance. I ignore the merchant ship, we didn't come all this way for a miserable little boat. 09.58 pm.Finally a message from the BDU: large convoy sighted on AM19 grid with ESE course and speed of 7Kn.
26th October. We intercept the convoy at 00.45 am. Sea always moving. I follow the convoy in order attitude and at 06.45 am I will send a report to the BDU to know what to do. Attack or wait for other U-boats ?

My guess is, you will be ordered to attack alone ...
