Attacks on U-24 during this patrol

5 Nov 1942
19.18 hrs, Black Sea, off Poti, Georgia: U-24 fired a G7e torpedo at Soviet M/S trawler T-492, which passed beneath the target below the bridge. The trawler then forced U-24 to dive with gunfire. U-24 scored a hit at 21.37 hrs, but the torpedo was a dud. After U-24 had fired and missed with her last torpedo at 00.38 hrs on 6 November, the boat surfaced and exchanged fire with the 20mm AA gun, which malfunctioned shortly afterwards, forcing U-24 to break off the attack with slight damage to the conning tower from machine gun fire.
