  17 Jan 19431902
1923 (e)
37° 20'N, 6° 20'EAt 1902 hours, the lookout aft spotted an aircraft coming from the south. Although it could have been a Junker 88, T.V. Girola ordered the submarine to crash-dive.

At 1910 hours, Nichelio surfaced and proceeded northward.

At 1918 hours, an aircraft was sighted on the port bow at a distance, making directly for the submarine. There was no time to crash-dive and Girola ordered the machine guns manned and they opened fire at a range of 1,000 metres. The aircraft was identified as of the Armstrong Whitworth [Whitley] type.

At 1919 hours, it flew over at a height of 30-40 metres and dropped five bombs. One fell 20 metres off the starboard bow, bomb fragments hit the submarine, causing a leak forward which prevented diving. The aircraft was observed to fire back at the submarine with its stern gun.

At 1922 hours, the aircraft flew over the submarine at a height of 2,000 metres without dropping a bomb.

At 1955 hours, the aircraft attempted a surprise attack, dropping a single bomb which fell 50 metres from the port beam.

At 2005 hours, it flew at a height of 50 metres and, reaching 100 metres on the port side,it strafed the submarine. Fire was returned with the twin Breda machine-guns aft. The submarine could not used the deck gun due to the poor condition of the ammunition.

At 2020 hours, the leak forward had been plugged and the submarine dived and gradually reached 100 metres to test her water tightness.

At 0223 hours on the 18th, she received the order to return to base.

The aircraft was Hudson 'J' of 500 Squadron piloted by Flight Lieutenant H.G. Holmes. It had detected the submarine by radar, at a range of 5 miles, attacking by taking advantage of the moonlight. It had actually dropped three depth charges, which overshot the target on the first run. One 250-lb G.P. bomb was released from 1,600 feet on the second run and missed the starboard bow by 20 feet. The bomber had also strafed Nichelio, who replied inaccurately on the first run, using both cannon and machine-guns, but her aim became more accurate afterward, although the aircraft was not hit.

The submarine was actually hit by three depth-charges, one of which was found imbedded in the bow after her return to Cagliari; the other two did not explode. The A/S bomb also caused some damage requiring the submarine to return to Naples for repairs, which would take nearly a month.

1349 (e)
38° 02'N, 6° 29'EAt 1355 hours, an aircraft was sighted at a high altitude. It dived on the submarine, releasing a single bomb, which missed by 300 metres ahead. It was identified as of the Armstrong Whitworth [Whitley] type. Nichelio submerged at 1356 hours and, two minutes later, at a depth of 80 meters, she was shaken by three depth charges without incurring damage.

The aircraft was Hudson 'K' of 608 Squadron piloted by Lieutenant E.U. Johansen. It followed up the earlier attack by the 500 Squadron Hudson and sighted a surfacing U-boat of the GEMMA class at 1345 hours. The attack was made with an A/S bomb which exploded 100-150 yards ahead of the sub. The submarine immediately dived The Hudson followed up by releasing a stick of depth charges, without observing results. It released a smoke float and stayed on the scene observing until a later attack by Wellington 'S' of 150 Squadron.
  18 Jan 1943235538° 20'N, 6° 38'EAt 2355 hours, an aircraft was seen at a distance of 3,000 metres. Nichelio was ready to open fire, when the aircraft turned away at a distance of 2,000 meters and the submarine dived immediately.
