U64 IXB. 2. Flotilla
 
Patrol 2
19.JUN.40 to 5.JUL.40

We never reached our patrol grid (EJ26), or even saw an enemy ship.

U64 got jumped by aircraft north of The Shetlands, and was forced to make for home with 51% Hull Integrity.

The score card reads:
2 patrols completed.
4 merchants sunk for 20.172 GRT.

Out on my first ever patrol with the 1st Flotilla out of Kiel, March 1941. Ordered to proceed to N.Atlantic, had two contacts on route, the first a lone merchant north of Lerwick but the weather was so bad I decided to abort the pursuit (he was going east and it would have been a long chase), and the second a merchant with a destroyer escort just off the south west coast of Ireland which I also decided to avoid (not confident yet of taking on a destroyer). Reached my grid, did my patrol and am heading home. To sum up- 13 days, no kills. The last 4 days I have seen nor heard anything. The next thing I see I will shoot. Regardless...

U64 IXB. 2. Flotilla.
 
Patrol #3. 23.AUG.40 to 23.SEP.40

U64 has completed her 3. war patrol, and found her way into her new homeport of Lorient, France.

We dogged a convoy from AM18 to AM29, making multiple attacks.
5 merchants were sunk for 33.372 GRT, bringing our total to 9 merchants for 53.544 GRT.
Patrol 3 prooved more productive than 1 and 2 combined.

On 4.SEP.40, in grid AM24, U64 was forced to crash dive for aircraft.
That was the last plane we encountered, until learning about "The Bay" in BF54, on 21.SEP.40. Thankfuly, neither encounter produced any damage.

U-53 Patrol #2
From 24.AUG.39 to 16.SEP.39

Encountered few ships in heavy storm in the early days of war. Unable to attack due to weather. Tracked a cargo east from England, two torpedos missed.

Finally in 15.Sep, after 13 days without a luck, sunk a merchant, with the deckgun, worth of 4704 tons. Then we headed home, Wilhelmshaven, as the diesel was about to run out.

Deck and flak gun slightly damaged due to an aircraft.

Overall, crew spirits are down as well as myself. Two and a half week at sea and one ship sunk. Can't be happy about that.

Lost my last two careers, damn CTD.

Any how I back sailing around and a spot of fishing here and there. Looks like the political situation will soon boil over.

U64 IXB. Patrol 4.
 
Left Lorient on 21.OKT.40.

Encountered, and sank 1 merchant enroute to our patrol grid.

1.NOV.40
Presently patroling Grid DH32 (North of The Cannarrie Islands).

1 merchant sunk for 6446 GRT.
3 torpedoes expended (2 stern, 1 bow).
11 torpedoes remaining.

Perfect 1000 meter night surface attack.
Both stern torpedoes hit, and eventualy stopped the target.
The bow shot was eventualy used as a coup de grace.

Maybe you should taken the long way?
You're going to be there a while.

Good to see you back in action, Steve.
And with a VII(A)! Cool.
Good hunting.

Nah. I figure they'll keep us here a week and then send us on another sightseeing goodwill tour; maybe to Liverpool this time.

Yeah. I'm using Wreford-Brown's VIIA mod, which reduces the speeds, the range and the torpedo loadout. I just now remembered that since the stern torpedo tube was external there was no room, nor the crew for reloading it. When I'm done with this patrol I'm going to dismiss some of my crew to match the historic numbers.
