Attacks on U-241 during this patrol

18 May 1944
Aircraft attack, aircraft shot down:
British Catalina aircraft FP121 (333 Sqdn RAF/C, pilot S/Lt Harald E. Hartmann)

00.07 hrs, approx. 125 miles west of Ålesund, Norway: four days out from Bergen, U-241 was attacked by the Norwegian-crewed Catalina. Flak hits to the aircraft during the attack run apparently caused the depth charges to miss, but U-241 was sunk by another Catalina a few hours later. The starboard waist gunner was killed (Pty/O Kyrre D. Berg) and a large hole in the hull forced the pilot to beach the Catalina after landing on the River Tay, damaging it beyond repair.
