145There are two inacuracies regarding U 760. Kemp says it was the attack by VB-103 on 12 August 1943 that forced her to enter Vigo. Then he says the boat was interned because "the tide of the war having turned in the Allies' favour, the Spanish were not going to be seen cooperating too closely with the Germans".On September 8, 1943, U-760 was sailing on the surface alongside the U-262 when they were attacked by a British Wellington aircraft (Sqdn 179/C) about 150 miles out of Cape of Finisterre. The U-760 arrived at Vigo harbor and was put under the supervision of the Spanish Navy cruiser Navarra. After 24 hours the boat had not left the harbor (the neutrality laws allowed this time frame for emergency repairs and such) and it was interned.
