Am I wasting my time. It's July 1944.

Hi jimbuna:

The weather is bad. medium rain, heavy fog as I'm going down the coastline. Have about 40 hours to go yet before reaching Freetown. So, if there is DD traffic there, wish me luck.

Awarding my crew with several crates of Becks after racking up a great tonnage of 21,000 tonnes and infiltrating Gibraltar harbour and sinking a Tribal class.

Shame some will be leaving to join other boats.

U-65

8 August 1940 BF19

57000 tons, 3 torpedos left, continuing to patrol.

Captain Birdseye 05-05-09 12:51 PM

Just on our way to patrol AL95 just south of Greenland.

Current career is U-96 as Henrich Lehmann, using realistic patrol areas for the dates.

We intercepted a convoy and fired a salvo of four torps off at a large tanker, in the middle of getting numerous reports of convoys. We'd just caught the convoy run this morning.

We heard bulkheads breaking up, but Bdu didn't credit us the kill as we didn't see him get hit or go down.

We continued the journey north, with no problems. We found another large convoy in the extreme north atlantic. Another three torps salvo fired off, no hits. This time the Royal navy wanted us dead.

Two hours of DC charges from a Flower Class Corvette and a Southampton class put the willies up my men. A mixture of novice sailors and old sea dogs. Fear was rife.

We escaped with our lives, with all torps left in the aft tube. Let's go see what we can hunt near Greenland.
