Attacks on U-124 during this patrol

17 Oct 1940
08.55 hrs, mid Atlantic south of Iceland: the boat encountered the British River Class submarine HMS Clyde while acting as a weather boat. Assuming the vessel to be a destroyer, U-124 dived immediately, and remained unaware that the submarine had fired three torpedoes at her at 09.06 hrs. (Sources: KTB U-124/Patrol report HMS Clyde)
