Attacks on U-415 during this patrol

14 Jun 1943
In the afternoon a British Whitley bomber (10 OTU RAF/E, pilot Sgt Manson) found a group of three outbound boats (U-159, U-415 and U-634) and sent a contact report instead of attacking. When the boats dived, the aircraft attacked, dropping four depth charges on U-415 at 15.54 hrs. No damage. (Sources: Franks/Zimmerman)

24 Jul 1943
While attacking a convoy off Trinidad the boat was itself attacked by a "corvette", but escaped. (Sources: Blair, vol 2, page 366)
