General Events during this patrol


8 Oct 1942. After sinking the American merchantman John Carter Rose, the crew of U-201 gave the shipwrecked survivors provisions and bandages. This was four weeks after the issuing of the Laconia order, in which Admiral Dönitz directly forbade U-boats to undertake any rescue activity of this kind.
