On september 6th, Whilst sailing some 100km south of Cork a "merchant" was spotted by a sharp-eyed lookout. The distance was closed and it was identified as a small "motor vessel". Despite it's size, we decided to attack and some eight hit's later via the deck gun, she was sunk.

U-111 now continues to sail in position some 90-100km south of Eire.
K.Oesten - Radioman - U111 - Dated 6/9/1941 03:00hrs.

Following the overnight period, we intercepted a radio message sighting another convoy, not far from our position, this time with us in favourable position to plot an intercept. The chase was on!

At dawn on 7th September the convoy was sighted in grid BF18. A firing solution was obtained when we were close enough and a medium cargo & empire type frieghter was targetted.

Two direct hits were scored on the empire and she sunk rapidly. One hit on the stern of the medium merchant was obtained, meaning she ended up "Dead in the water" One torpedo missed the medium cargo, but ended up taking out and sinking a small steamer instead! :cool:

An hour or so later, following a brief run on us by an escort, which was evaded, we were able to give the medium merchant it's "coup de gras" and sunk that too. Several escorts then heard the commotion and attempted to head in our direction....big mistake, as the skipper and targetting crews were on top form taking out no less than FOUR escorts!!!

However, the commander decided he had to let the convoy continue on with a slight escort because he was now very low on torpedoes, and wanted to save these for some more juicy targets in another convoy!! :D Later in the day a Granville type frieghter was spotted by the lookouts and the commander fired a salvo of two torpedoes.

Unfortunately two missed and one ended up being a dud. This was all our torpedoes now expended!! :o :damn: So, It was down to the deck gun crew to do their job and boy they did, and sunk the freighter in no time. Now it was time to return to lorient and report back on our mission to BDu,Refit & Re-arm U111, and some R&R and promotions/qualifications awarded to the crew.

U111 tied up to the quay-side on September 9th, after a rather strange entrance with the boat, which caught some damage, after striking on something below the surface. What this was we might never find out but it took around 10% of our hull integrity away. :stare:

So U-111 is now predicted to be ready to go out again on Septmber 26th following her repairs.

Eschem Schnuz's Letters, 29th Flotilla
 
Dear Uncle Karl,

Transferred? TRANSFERRED? :o
Are you trying to get me killed or something? :x

Sufficed to say, I got out of Gibraltar. Happy? :stare:

And how are things up north? Infinitely better, I suspect.


U-87 Type VIIB, 29th Flotilla reporting from Patrol 24.
Realism @ 50%, original game specs.
9-day cruise. Transferred to 7th Flotilla.

Over and out.

PS: [Takes off white cap] So, I guess that's how the 29th Flotilla ends in SH3, huh?

WWII44 10-11-11 10:19 AM

Blundered into a convoy during a bad storm sank 8 ships but the 529 was positivly battered from a fight with a tribal class destoryer(though the destroyer didn't get of easy, she she limped away into the fog after raming us with only four of her original eight main guns still working). I got the Iron Cross 1st class and the 529 is laid up being repaired, the chief says they'll be a suprise haiting for me when I return from leave.

yeah we were lucky we lost our compresser and both electrics so I figuered it was best to scuttle her than risk being blown to tiny tiny bits by asw patrols.

Restarted using the Warship Mod, taken comand of the heavy cruiser Moltke and have desimated two convoys on my second patrol. I even sank the HMS Nelson.

Speakin of the HMS Nelson, I sunk her in the port at Gibraltar. idk how I got in there.

mightymightychatham 10-12-11 08:41 PM

I was enjoying a few sojourns in a Type IIA as a nice change of pace from my VIIC.

That was until I set out on my 4th patrol and all 5 torpedoes were duds. ALL 5! Grrrraaaagh! :damn:

In frustration I requested a transfer to the surface fleet and Admiral Raeder, recognising my fine leadership qualities, gave me command of the Graf Spee. :salute:

Oh destroyers? Where are you? Not scared of you any more! :arrgh!:

Bwahahahahaha!

Oberleutnant z. S. Erwin Wulf commanding U-66.

The boys at Lorient got the U-66 put back together again, along with a fresh coat of paint with the latest camo pattern. Needless to say the Chief has went over her with a fine toothed comb. Even he is impressed with the workmanship. Pulled a good patrol this time, sitting off of Africa. Lots of juicy cargo ships coming out of Freetown. Got a few bullet holes and dings in her this time. Seems Chief thinks the damage is light compared to the usual, even acceptable.

You seem to have found a way to fight planes.

Not bad for a new boat with mostly inexperienced crew. Couldn't help Bismarck but I bet those New Zealanders will miss their cruiser.

The Chief is in good spirits. No damage to the U-66 this time. I told him to just wait until the weather is good and the RAF is back out in force.:arrgh!:

It seems a couple of pictures were taken of the U-66 as she was pulling in to Lorient after her last successful patrol. Wouldn't be surprised to see these show up in some propaganda.

With only needing a refuel and rearm, I think she can be back out to sea in a couple of days, but the Chief wants the diesels looked over thoroughly, seems they ingested a large amount of water in the 5-10m seas we've been in for nearly the entire patrol.

Edit: Seems BdU won't listen this time. A staff position there awaits me. I told the men to take good care of the U-66, and to show the new commander, Leutnant z. S. Helmut Bornmann what a real u-boat crew is made of. 18 war patrols, 216 days at sea, 63 ships sunk, 52 merchants, 11 warships, 28 planes downed, 251089 GRT sent to the bottom.
