Default U 113 (IXC) - 1st War Patrol - Awards & Promotions

Sunday, 14 September 1941 - Lorient

B.d.U. Assessment:

A solid war patrol by this highly decorated commander with a new boat and crew, returning to active duty after having served in a training flotilla and encountering a changed situation at the front. The boat encountered heavy enemy air cover in the area between the Hebrides and Iceland, as well as the Bay of Biscay. The loss of two crew members on 6 August, is to be attested to this new situation.
Furthermore, the enemy now has the possibility of avoiding the Uboat positions, which caused the boat to encounter only independently traveling ships, with the exception of the small convoy eliminated on 7 August.
For this reason, B.d.U. has given the directive of cyphering of the grid indicators and the limiting of knowledge of the key to departments to which this knowledge is indispensable, to prevent the enemy being unable to gain any information on U-boat dispositions from the Communications Service.
The loss of life at the sinking of the passenger ships on August 5 and August 17, have to be blamed on the captains of the sunken ships, as the commander took every precaution in both cases, to limit the number of civilian casualties.

Currently U-110 a type IXB U-boat is conducting a special operation given by BDU in late April 1940, the mission is to hop between various allied ports and sink any high value targets, large warships or tankers
This is dangerous since the waters are so shallow but worth it in terms of the war effort
