Attacks on U-600 during this patrol

14 Jun 1943
20.15 hrs, Bay of Biscay, outbound: a group of three boats (U-257, U-600 and U-615) was strafed by British Flying Fortress FK212 (220 Sqdn RAF/V, pilot F/O C.F. Callender). U-600 and U-615 observed AA hits on the aircraft and claimed it as shot down, but the Fortress was apparently finished off by a Junkers Ju88C fighter (15/KG 40, pilot Lt Lothar Wolff) about 90km northwest of Cape Ortegal at 20.40 hrs. All nine aircrew were lost. (Sources: Franks/Zimmerman/Goss)
