Attacks on U-667 during this patrol

25 Sep 1943
At 03.09 hours, the boat fought off an attack from a British Wellington (179 Sqn RAF/Q, pilot F/S R.W. Dix). Its depth charges hung up due to flak damage and further hits in the port engine and starboard wing forced the aircraft to return to base.

At 10.35 hours, another Wellington (Sqdn 179/R, pilot F/S D.J. McMahon) dropped six depth charges that fell close.
