Attacks on U-592 during this patrol

29 Jan 1944
The boat was seriously damaged by a very determined attack from a B-24 Liberator (USN VB/100, H.H. Budd). The aircraft was also damaged, but the U-boat dived and escaped. After radioing in this encounter in, U-592 was hunted down by F. J. 'Johnny' Walker's famous Support Group 2 using Enigma intelligence, and sunk on January 31. (Sources: Blair, vol 2, page 488)
