Attacks on U-56 during this patrol
6 Sep 1940
The British submarine HMS Tribune launched torpedoes at a submarine about 15 nautical miles (28 km) NE of St. Kilda, Outer Hebrides in position 57º58N, 08º14W. All missed. There is little doubt that the target was U-56, since that was the only u-boat passing through that area on that day. No attack was reported, however.
