Attacks on U-333 during this patrol
21 Mar 1944
The boat was sighted west of Tiree in the Hebrides by Allied aircraft which in brought in the famous Support Group 2 (Cpt. Walker), which then hunted the boat aggressively. KL Cremer bottomed the boat at a depth of 40m (131 ft) for ten hours and despite considerable problems "unsticking" from the muddy seabed, U-333 managed to surface and again escaped.
