Notes on event

At 12.10 hours on 27 August 1941, U-752 fired one G7e torpedo at a patrol vessel off Cape Kanin Nos and observed how the ship disappeared in an explosion after being hit aft of the funnel after 1 minute 37 seconds. The ship sunk must have been the fishing trawler RT-8 Seld´ (Master I.N. Demidova) which had left port in late August 1941 and was reported missing in October 1941 after she failed to return.
