Rammed!

Post by tigre » 10 Mar 2019 22:44

Hello to all :D; a query: U boot badly damaged - October 1941.
As per the seller, allegedly the picture belongs to U 753. In the back of the photo it was written "Our conning tower seen from the bow, October 29, 1941". I can not find anything like this kind of incident for U 753.

Any idea of this incident? Cheers. Raúl M 8).

How much you want to bet that the next time they practiced emergency dives, the crew managed to cut a second of their previous time.

Hi Raul,
I didn't found something about that fact.
The U-753 was a Type VIIC U-boat built for Nazi Germany's Kriegsmarine for service during World War II. Commissioned on 18 June 1941, she served with 3rd U-boat Flotilla until 30 November as a training boat
Thus in the month of october 1941 the U-753 was still on training and not in active duty.

An other question:
Since several monts I am not more able to login into the Feldgrau forum (and I am not the sole). Were you able to login into that forum?????
Kindly regards
Prosper
