Patrol 13 of U-47

Number 13 certainly proved to be unlucky for us...the seas were continually rough, making it certain that the deck gun crew was just along for the ride, at least SIX torpedoes malfunctioned and either didn't detonate or ran too deep, and ship sightings were practically nil. After firing all but the final remaining stern torpedo (the one in external reserve) KL Hossel gave up (although he used much more coarser language to announce it) and we returned home, having sunk only three ships for a measly 11,714 tons, thereby bringing our combined total to 281,195 tons. En route home, KL Hossel spent most of his off-duty time thinking up grotesque ways for the SS to publicly execute Herr Churchill once Britain surrenders.

On return to port, KL Hossel was again ordered to Berlin, where he was presented with the Diamonds to his Knight's Cross by the Fuhrer. When the Fuhrer asked him if he thought there was anything the U-boat service desperately needed, KL Hossel replied, "Ja, mein Fuhrer...better torpedoes."

I did. This is just a translation the Royal Navy made after Dönitz's archives were transferred to London. :DL (Actually I'm desperately going through my German textbooks and dictionaries, trying to remember wie es eigentlich war geschrieben und versprochen... Hang on, I'll get there eventually :O:)

JazzJR 08-16-11 08:12 AM

I'm starting to agree...I got the Oak Leaves and the Oak Leaves with Swords in the same patrol recently, and then one patrol later, I got the Diamonds! Wish I could figure out how to hand out promotions that quick...I could use some more stripes on my sleeve! :D

Currently, I am in hot pursuit of a convoy in grid square BE39, December 30, 1940. My boys want to be home for New Year's but sadly that's not going to happen. Not as long as we have torpedoes, anyway.
My first attack on this convoy bagged me a mid size freighter and I damaged a tanker too. Last I checked, she was listing by the stern but still managed to keep up with the convoy. In the rear of the convoy was an aux. cruiser and I have my mind set on that now.

I'm gaining on the convoy and there's still about 8 hours of darkness left... :arrgh!:

At least I'm inside with the women, and I will blindfold myself whenever I leave or enter the ship.

Great my current campaign got messed up by SH3 Commander.
Now I got to start over again, only I wonder when and where.
Don't feel like waiting a month in 1939.

Patrol 14 of U-47

We were assigned further south than ever before...grid DT26. The boys were a bit put-out at having to spend Christmas and New Year's at sea, but we made up for it by sinking a Passenger-Cargo off Spain about 2 days out. Our Christmas present came when we attacked a convoy off SW Spain. It was comprised of various small ships, and KL Hossel was eyeing a Small Tanker on the far side (tankers are more valuable than freighters, in the Kaleun's esteemed opinion), when we sighted an Auxiliary Cruiser at the back of the convoy, and much closer, I might add! Four torpedoes fired, then down to 67 meters to wait out any depth-charges. Four hits, the target sinks, and the convoy hurries on to avoid further attacks. No DCs forthcoming. A Merry Christmas indeed!

Returned to port just after the New Year, having sunk just two ships, but racked up 15,938 tons, bringing our total to 297,133 tons. KL Hossel was flown back to Berlin to meet with the Fuhrer, who congratulated him on being the second U-boat skipper to receive the Golden Oak Leaves. (Von Harris was the first.)
