Attacks on U-209 during this patrol
29 Mar 1942
11.03 hrs, Barents Sea: the boat dived after being sighted by HMS Hussar and HMS Gossamer. Both minesweepers then carried out seven attacks runs until 12.44 hrs, launching 30 depth charges with difficulty, as the traps were frozen. At the end of the hunt they heard two underwater detonations and claimed the sinking of a U-boat. U-209 had, however, managed to escape undamaged after the first few attacks.
