Attacks on U-275 during this patrol

22 Jul 1944
An aircraft sighted the boat when she rose to periscope depth to take bearings in the English Channel north of Brest, and vectored in a British hunter-killer group which pursued the boat for seven hours. No damage. (Sources: Blair, vol 2, page 604)

24 Jul 1944
On entering the Bay of Seine the boat was hunted for eight hours by a hunter-killer group, but managed to elude her pursuers once again. After that she was attacked again each time the periscope was raised. U-275 finally managed to enter Boulogne on 1 Aug. Date is approximate. (Sources: Blair, vol 2, page 604)
