Attacks on U-667 during this patrol

24 Sep 1943
Shortly before dawn the boat fought off a Leigh Light attack by a British Wellington bomber (179 Sqn RAF/P, pilot Sgt A.W. Ellis) off Portugal. Neither side suffered any damage, but U-667 was on her way to the Mediterranean and the Allied aircraft were now alerted.

In the evening of the 24th an attack by another Wellington (RAF Sqdn 179/D, pilot F/O A. Chiltern) caused some minor damage.
