General Events on 19 June
U-203 encountered the US battleship USS Texas and its destroyer screen on Neutrality Patrol about 800 miles south-southeast of Iceland. The U-boat followed the ship for over 20 hours and Mützelburg identified her clearly. He even tried to get in attack position because the ships were moving eastwards into the declared blockade area around Britain, but never came into firing range and stopped chasing them as they turned around.
19 June 1944: U-188 arrived at Bordeaux with a cargo of tin, wolfram, opium and quinine after leaving Penang, Sumatra on the 9th January. U-boat HQ had assumed U-188 was sunk because the boat's radio had failed and it had been unable to send messages since early May.
