Default KTB-11 U-94 (klh)

Shortly after returning to Wilhelmshaven I received orders to take command of the Type VIIC boat U-94 and transfer her to the new base in Lorient.

We departed on 18 September 1940 and took the English Channel to our assigned patrol in BF12. I am pleased not to have to make that transit again. Despite being within site of the French coast the entire way, we were harassed by British torpedo boats many times and had to remain submerged during daylight hours.

En route to our assignment we encountered a lone British cargo ship on 23 September and sunk her with torpedoes as the seas were too rough to rely on the deck gun. It took three to finish the job.

On 24 September we intercepted what was reportedly a neutral convoy heading southwest, but discovered to our delight it was flying British flags. We fired a spread of torpedoes and hit two ships, sinking a medium tanker. A pair of destroyer spent the next few hours keeping us down while the convoy made its escape. After surfacing we attempted an end run but the convoy changed course away and eluded us.

We spent the next two days in a search pattern in BF12 and were given the gift of two unescorted tankers. We submerged and waited for them to approach our position. After a fast surface we took aim with the deck gun and sunk both.



The next day we discovered another large British convoy bound for England comprising 16 ships plus escorts. We fired all five tubes and hit three ships, sinking a freighter. I immediately took the boat to 100m silent running and the escorts never picked up our scent.

With only a single aft torpedo left, we made our way to our new base in Lorient, arriving on 29 September 1940. It was a glorious first patrol in U-94, with five kills for 32000 tonnes in only 11 days.

Kapitänleutnant Hähl, U-45

Looks pretty good! I've always played GWX in the past but kinda got stuck on CCoM10.0. Works pretty good is runs quite stable.

Monday, 1 July 1940 - Commissioning of U 112 in Bremen.

Until Thursday, 18 July 1940 - Work-up's and Trials with the U.A.K. (Kpt.z.S.R. BRÄUTIGAM), the 2nd Training Division, Gotenhafen (Freg.Kpt. HARTMANN) and the 5th Training Flotilla, Stralsund (Kvt.Kpt. MOEHLE).

Torpedo-Shooting Training was done with the new firing fuse Pi-G7H, which were introduced in June 1940, due to the "torpedo crisis" in April/May 1940.

The Pi-G7H is basically, a Pi-1, which has been adapted according to the torpedoes captured from the English submarine HMS Seal (37 M) but without the magnetic fuse (MZ). So, only the contact fuse (AZ) can be used.

The differentiation between the Ato and Eto pistol, is the same as with the Pi-1:
Kopf/K-a = T-1/G7a/Ato; Kopf/K-b = T-2/G7e/Eto

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

On Friday, 19 July 1940, arrived at the AGRU-Front, Kaseburg/Bornholm (Kvt.Kpt.-Ing. MÜLLER).

Saturday, 20 July 1940 - Bornholm
1802 - Qu.AO81 - AGRU-Front.
Radio report about unsuccessful RAF raid on W'haven.

Sunday, 21 July 1940 - Kaseburg
AGRU-Front successfully completed.

Default U-47, 2nd Flot., 30.11.39

Hi all.

After a two year silent run I'm back at sea with Hubert Henke on his 4th patrol. Playing LSH III 2015.

Ill health has given me some time on my hands for a little while, and I couldn't think of a better way to spend it.

I've lost my copy of the U-Boat Commander's Handbook, but I found an online version for the moment. I also bought U-Boat Tactics In World War II. And any day I'm expecting Iron Coffins, which I'll read in a recovery period.

Good luck. Gavin.

In that case, we wish you good health + time for "Happy Hunting"!

Fantastic to see my post doing so well after all this time.
I'll be sure to add to this over the coming days after quite a lengthy stay on land. I really need to get away from this virus mania and the churning sea is the only place to find my solace...

Paul.

A few hours out of Wilhelmshaven on 9.3.40 I've been ordered to return to base.

Apparently I've to undertake a 'special task' from 2.4.40

I've not experienced this before, I'm a little anxious

That means it must be your turn to go into the barrel.

The 2nd of April has almost came and went and I'm a bit unclear on my orders......

My patrol grid was AN46 and I was there very early so I took out some merchants, and I left myself the 4 bow tubes loaded for my 'special task'.

On 2.4.40 I got a message saying when Wesrubung starts I've to 'make full use of my weapons' in Norwegian waters and to be in my starting position.

Ok........what's my starting position? AN46 isn't very near Norway.

Should I stay in my patrol grid, or mover closer to Norway? I'm confused
