Attacks on U-262 during this patrol

26 Sep 1942
On day three of her first patrol the boat was attacked by two RAF Hudsons (pilots E. Tammes and R. Horney) west of Bergen, Norway. The aircraft dropped eight depth charges between them, causing enough damage for the boat to break off patrol and return to base, reaching Bergen two days later. (Sources: Blair, vol 2, page 23.)
