Between 04.10 and 04.13 hours on 2 Nov, 1942, U-402 fired torpedoes at the convoy SC-107 about 500 miles east of Belle Isle and reported three ships sunk. One hit was observed on a Geraldine Mary type vessel in station #11 of the convoy, but this was possibly a detonation near the ship, while the other torpedoes hit the Dalcroy and Rinos.
