Attacks on U-1060 during this patrol

27 Oct 1944
Aircraft attack, aircraft shot down:
Fairey Firefly Mk.I Z1978 (1771 Sqn FAA/4H, pilot SubLt Samuel A.W. Waters)

U-1060 was discovered by 4 Firefly aircraft of the British carrier HMS Impacable while under escort by the German minesweeper M-433 in the Vegafjord. Their attack badly damaged the escort while the U-boat managed to shot down on of the attackers (pilot was killed, the navigator taken prisoner). One hour later the vessels were attacked by 13 Barracuda aircraft (828 & 841 Sqn FAA), escorted by 3 Firefly, which sank the minesweeper and forced the U-boat to ground itself on the skerry Fleina.
