Attacks on U-667 during this patrol

29 May 1943
15.40 hrs, between Iceland and the Faeroes: the boat was attacked by British Catalina flying boat FP183 (190 Sqn RAF/V, pilot S/L J.A. Holmes). The Catalina was hit by flak during a strafing run, but dropped six depth charges that fell approx. 30m (98ft) astern. More gunfire was exchanged, but U-667 soon dived. The Catalina was hit in the port engine and hull, and the co-pilot slightly wounded by a shell splinter, but reached base at Sullom Voe and landed safely. (Sources: Franks/Zimmerman)
