The Fate of U-254
 
I began the war with a Med command. U-254's war started in Salamis, Greece in October of 1941 and ended in Toulon in September of 1944.

The Mediterranean is a very busy place and being relatively small gets you into action very quickly and often on patrol. Had many success, including 3 Aquitania Class Liners during the course of the war. There were also some very close calls with the Grim Reaper, but we managed to sailor on.

1944 in Toulon is a dangerous place to be. In July of that year a B-24 raid, which I fought out on the surface, reduced my sub to 4% Hull integrity the most damage I have ever suffered without sinking. From then on I went to periscope depth when Air raids occurred.

Now I knew that Toulon fell to the Allies in September of '44 so I was expecting a notification that my boat was captured along with myself and crew - end of career - but NO!

SPOILER ALERT!!!


What happened was I started my last patrol in the slip late Sept 1944. The band playing, nurses waving, etc. From the Conning Tower I could see that a Merchant Ship blocked the end of the slip. "That's odd, how do I get around that?" I asked myself just as the first shell hit the U-254. I was under direct fire from British destroyers just outside of the harbor! I ordered the boat to periscope depth and a turn to port to get around the Merchant even though there was not enough room. I then went to external view and watched shell after shell slam into my boat as, quite literally, the band played on. Until.....


SPOILER ALERT!!!



We all died. End of Career.

Pity since I had sunk a Ceramic type liner and a 5k tonner merchant.
I forgot to save so all over again.

Nov 28, 1939

In command of type IIA U19.
Just been tracking a lone merchant (in AN43) for the last hour on my way to patrol grid AN26. Whilst manoeuvring around 9000m away my first fish malfunctioned and fired on its own command, luckily the merchant cannot of observed the following detonation of the defective torpedo. At 21:20 my 2nd torpedo was fired at a range of 4800m and ran true resulting in a strike under the boiler room, the merchant is now dead in the water and slowly sinking.

With 3 fish left I hope my assigned quadrant proves fruitful.

1940 Western Approaches. Intercepted a convoy via a radio approach and hydrophone use once at the intercept point.
Foggy, raining, but light winds, so I've been following it's course via hydrophone for hours; convoy is approx. 10k meters to my WNW.
Staying submerged until this fog lifts; visibility is terrible and don't need to have an escort pop out of the fog at close range if I was on the surface.
Convoy has zig zagged of it's original NE course, now headed due north for awhile. I'm hoping it zig zags due east right into my path but I may lose it with the fog keeping me mostly submerged.
If so, I'll try to regain contact after the fog lifts, if in a reasonable time.

It is mid-September 1939, and U-46(Type VIIB) is currently being depth charged by 3 destroyers off of Scapa Flow after attempting to enter the harbor. Been evading depth charges for an hour and plan to go back home to Kiel when the attack is over.


Currently I have 30,000 tons of shipping in this patrol

On patrol 5 with WAC5.2.

Ran into a huge convoy of 15+ ships with 2 escorts. Had a hard time getting into the convoy so just did a 3km surface attack with 4 torps. Unfortunately the outside column absorb all the hits. I was only managing to sink 2 small merchants. Then the escorts caught up. Somehow these early war destroyers can accurately locate me even without ADIC. I did not hear any Pinging sound. Wonder how their hydrophones can hear me when I am all stop and almost 200 meters deep.

On patrol 4 north from Loch Ewe i found 10 ships: 3 tanker, 6 cargo and 1 trooper. Trooper, tanker and 1 cargo didn`t survive this meeting.:haha:


Now before 6th patrol i got a brand new type IX from bdu. Patrol from Kiel to AM54 was without any contact. Bdu will not be happy.
