Those B@st@rds, They Shot At Me!
July of 1941 and those sons of b*tches (a coastal merchant) shot back at me while making a surface run with my deck gun. First time I've been shot at. I started to dive from 500 meters away but I got pissed and decided to have my gunners take out their gun instead. Luckily they were bad shots and went to the bottom! I was overjoyed watching them sink to a watery grave.

My first post here, hello fellow Captains.

Small report from U-101, 29th Flotilla September 12th, 1941.

Left La Spezia for the Mediterranean Sea on the morning of the 5th of September at approx 07:30. We made our way down the eastern coasts of Corsica and Sardinia before making open sea. Very little to report.

7th of September, 1941: Came in contact and quickly sunk a 4878 tonne merchant ship by day with deck gun before turning east-south-east for our petrol sector: CH94.

8th of September, 1941: Came into contact with another merchant ship of undisclosed tonnage at 9:30am - watched the Luftwaffe bomb the ship with several Junkers via periscope before we could sink it ourselves.

9th of September, 1941: Heavy rain and extremely bad weather. Bridge watch caught site of a coal vessel between 4-5000 tonnes doing between 8 and 12 knots at 1:45am. We were unable to catch and stopped pursuit after losing sight.

10th of September, 1941: U-101 navigated the north coast of North Africa with few encounters. Detected via hydrophones suspected warships as we made for the straight of Gibraltar at a depth of 40m. No visuals. We used the bad weather to slip into the straight of Gibraltar and into the bay of Gibraltar undetected.

11th of September, 1941: Between 12am and 4am U-101 successfully destroyed two anchored T2 and T3 Tanker vessels in the harbour of Gibraltar. T2 8654 tonnage, T3 18459 tonnage. 4 T1 eels and deck guns were used. Royal Navy dispatched several unidentified warships but U-101 successfully evaded them and slipped out of the bay. Minor damage due to miscalculation of depth.

12th of September, 1941: No encounters as we made our way north-west towards Palma - repairs ongoing. Aft tube eels all that is left of torp compliment - deck gun ammunition moderate. Probable deck gun attacks on return to La Spezia.

End of report.

Thanks for the lovely welcome, guys. Just finished my first petrol, barely making it home under allied aircraft strafing. Pretty intense.

Marlene Dietrich
No war stories here, just a boring patrol in the CF region hoping to stumble upon a convoy.

Thank goodness for Marlene Dietrich! Wonderful music to listen to while on patrol.

A big "thank you" to the person who put the download together here.

Refuelling and rearming at the U-Motoschiff 'Thalia' in Cadiz. Several hospital boats in port but an honourable captain abides by the naval code. Setting sail for the gauntlet of the Gibraltar Straight once more.
