I'm on my 4th patrol and im currently at 25 meters under water staying idle (British east coast) and reading old (digitized) newspaper from that year and a day (7. december 1939.)

U-53, VIIB, 7th Flot. Kiel. Nov 25 1939. 4th patrol (3 wartime).

Currently on patrol in grid AM79, 1 Bulk Freighter (Community Units) sunk for 2850GRT in grid AN12. No contacts for the entire journey from there to here, crew a little demoralized. Nearing end of patrol period and considering diversion up the Irish Sea passing off the Bristol Channel up past Holyhead, Stranraer, and out to AM52 to pick up some targets of opportunity. Currently at 80% fuel with only 2 torpedo's spent. Will remain in AM52 for as long as fuel and weapon load permits.

Update from U-53, 21.00, 27th Nov 1939.

Came across a large enemy convoy in grid AM97, managed to sink 2 Large Tankers for 10333GRT each, a Large Old Cargo for 8228 and a Large Freighter for 8605. One large steamer burning and making west at 1 knot, bow very low in water, will come back for her if she does not sink within the next couple of hours. Convoy escorted by 3 destroyers, only 2 began attack on U-53, with 1 rejoining the convoy after about an hour. Taken light damage and flooding to forward sections but repairs are underway and all is in hand. Am making for the front of the convoy to continue attack, 3 torpedo's left, experienced 1 dud G7a torpedo during initial attack, all others fine.

Crew has perked up somewhat....

my fellow Kaleuns, who are still fighting against DDs and the rough Atlantic, pls show your emphasis and rest for a minute.
Kaleu Artur Stein, commander of a type IXB (U-110), hasn't responded to all calls made by BdU.
he is supposed to get DCed after sending his convoy-contacts and a message which he stated to have sunk a large merch in.
we think, ASW-vessels got his location and were able to put this glorious sailor out of this world.
always remember! :cry:

current date: 1942-08-26
tonnage sunk: 726,025
patrol-nr: 9th
medals: all the glitter and fancies .....

RIP, Kptlt Stein. :salute:





P.S. My 1WO is preparing to go on leave and asked me to find out if there's a Frau Stein back home who may need consoling. Should I smack him for you?

hmm, I really don't know ....
what do wives prefer at that specific moment?
a sensitive listener?
a letter only stating formalities?
a shoulder to lean on?

in "my" entire career I wasn't able to guess .... :hmmm:

I know, I felt so awful I wrote you a song:

Auf einem Seemannsgrab,
Da blühen keine Rosen,
Auf einem Seemannsgrab,
Da blüht kein Blümelein,
Der einz'ge Gruß, das sind die weißen Möwen
Und eine Träne die ein kleines Mädel weint.

In German even!

Okay, so I copy/pasted it. Whatever. :O:

on a sailor's grave
no roses blossom
on a sailor's grave
no flowers blossom
white seagulls bid the only farewell,
and a tear shed by a girl.


in english even!
ok, I tried (with my constricted means of commanding a foreign language).
thx for this words.
Artur Stein would appreciate them ..... :cry:
