General Events during this patrol


4 Oct 1943. A US Avenger aircraft from the USS Card dropped a bomb on a group of three U-boats which had assembled to refuel from the U-tanker U-460. The bomb missed its mark and caused no damage. However, in a follow-up attack the same day, U-460 and another of the three U-boats, U-422, were sunk.
