Attacks on U-48 during this patrol
29 Mar 1941
The boat was fired on by several merchant ships while attacking the unescorted convoy HX 115 south of Iceland, moving through the columns at night on the surface, and at least one of the freighters, the British steam merchant Oakworth made an attempt to ram her. However, U-48 was undamaged and even managed to escape without being attacked when the escorts eventually arrived in the morning.
