Pattuglia E.Morgersen 20 ottobre 1940.
 
Afraid of getting too close to the Irish coast, I decided to attack, despite the very rough sea. I hit a merchant ship and I jumped to a depth of 69 metres and started to escape. Unfortunately I was damaged, but it was nothing serious, and we reached a depth of 160 metres. The two escort corvettes were not very skilful and after a while they gave up and moved away. With only two torpedoes I returned to the base of St.Nazaire. During our return we sank a freighter, neutral or friend I don't know why the darkness prevented me from seeing the flag, but the course it had was definitely towards England. The sinking was not credited to us. As soon as we are ready we will leave for the South Atlantic.

You Can’t see your current patrol when still at sea...

You can add as many new entries as you want. They are in blue color when hitting add new.
You can edit also the normal kills entries.
If you don’t hit save button, they will not show ingame log
They are showing also in Cmdr personal files (via browser)...just click the patrol number


"They are showing also in Cmdr personal files (via browser)...just click the patrol number" => Yes, that's the way I always do it.

But how do you do it, that it shows up like the pic you posted here? Which game save do I load do be able to see it in the onboard KTB (keystroke "k")?

I forgot to add: I only use the Weapons Officer's help for surface attacks, as historically, it was the XO who made the actual surface attack, while the Cmdr commanded/steered the boat.



In a submerged attack, I'm on my own, though :03:

U-101, 7tf Flotilla
Left at: November 9, 1940 09:39 a.m.
from St.Nazaire
Risk-free and monotonous travel. Usual crew routine.

19401111 1253 Reached the patrol grid.BF15.
Good sea and clear skies. Crews ready for action. I have a new officer Michael Marbach and I think he is a good element with three specialisations (Watchman, Helmsman and Torpedoman). Small merchant ship sighted and sunk with the cannon.

19401112 0034 Sighted and chased another small merchant ship and sunk with artillery in grid BF16. I congratulate the artillerymen.

19401112 1444 Sighted two ships travelling together. Chased to grid BF12. An oil tanker ( T2 Tanker ), gunned down and same end to an M04B 5 minutes later.
The crew is on high and morale is sky-high.

19401112 2137 We sink an MX04B into the BF12 grill while we are on our way home.

19401115 0351 We enter the base in St.Nazaire. Patrol with excellent results with 5 sinkings for a total of about 25000/26000 tons.

Received an iron cross for the head piece and 29 badges for the sailors. A qualification given to an officer. I am proud of my men.
