General Events during this patrol


26 Feb 1943. Using information from code-breaking the British heavy cruiser HMS Sussex found the German blockage-runner Hohenfriedberg and forced her to scuttle. Oblt Looks in U-264 launched a full salvo at the cruiser, which missed, and the Sussex left the area unscathed. Looks then rescued the entire crew of the scuttled vessel, arriving at St Nazaire on 5 March.
