Attacks on U-275 during this patrol

24 Jul 1944
On entering the Bay of Seine the boat was hunted for eight hours by a hunter-killer group, but managed to elude her pursuers once again. After that she was attacked again each time the periscope was raised. U-275 finally managed to enter Boulogne on 1 Aug. Date is approximate. (Sources: Blair, vol 2, page 604)
