Attacks on U-755 during this patrol

24 Aug 1942
At 21.55 hrs, HNoMS Potentilla sighted two U-boats on the surface near convoy ONS 122 and began to chase them northwards. They were U-174 and U-755, and the latter was fired on from the 4in gun at a range of about 12 miles, but the shots fell short. Both U-boats managed to escape under cover of darkness within two hours, proceeding at full speed while surfaced. (Sources: ADM reports, KTB U-755)

24 Sep 1942
This was a difficult day for U-755. At 05.49 hrs she was fired on by a convoy escort; two hours later she missed convoy SC 100 with a spread four torpedoes. She was attacked from the air at 16.15, and again by an escort at 17.00, and that time damaged so heavily she was forced to return to base.
