Attacks on U-135 during this patrol

8 Feb 1943
14.45 hrs, Atlantic, west of Cornwall: the boat was attacked near convoy SC 118 by a British B-24 Liberator (RAF Sqdn 120/K, pilot Bryan W. Turnbull) which dropped four depth charges. Although taken by surprise, U-135 fought off the first attack and then dived. Damage was repaired, and the boat continued its patrol, but other leaks were found later that forced a return to Lorient, arriving 28 February. (Sources: Rohwer/Ritschel)
