The sub L-3 and Grischenko seems to be a tricky fish?
Why are som many questionsmarks regarding this particular sub?
Its not only in 1941, but in 1942 and -43 as well.
Is there no log available for L-3?

6. Feb.43 Grundzee (possible, on old mines)

The above-mentioned 1941's losses (Kaija, Henny, Uno, Egeran) are now usually assigned to German mines.
Merchant Franz Bohmke (sometimes assigned to L-3) was lost on storm 1942, while submarine U-416 sank on British mines.
For the last year of war, Pollux, M-3138 and Jersbek all assigned to other mines.
Currently there is also a relatively new info on German forum/discussion about another small merchant named Johanna (143 grt), lost on 21.Oct.42 on L-3 mines or British air-dropped mines. Very little info of this ship, likely from its ex-Dutch origins.
