Attacks on U-629 during this patrol

12 Mar 1944
06.05 hrs, Bay of Biscay, outbound: after illuminating the boat with the Leigh Light, British Wellington bomber (612 Sqn RAF/C, pilot F/S D. Bretherton) dropped four depth charges. Flak damaged the aeroplane tail, but the tail gunner had a lucky escape because he was not at his station during the attack, and later discovered that a round had passed through the empty turret from bottom to top. U-629 was severely damaged and was forced to return to base. (Sources: Franks/Zimmerman)
