Attacks on U-264 during this patrol

4 Oct 1943
While being refuelled by U-460 (together with U-422 and U-455) the boats were attacked by Avenger aircraft from the escort carrier USS Card. After putting up heavy flak the smaller VIIC boats dived, leaving U-460 on the surface. She was destroyed when she also tried to dive. U-264 was attacked later in the day and once again escaped, but this time serious damage forced a return to base. (Sources: Blair, vol 2, page 429)
