Patrolled between 41°00'N and 42°00'N (later extended to 40°00'N), and between 20°00'W and 28°00'W. Suffered from bad weather, four men were lost overboard. Sighted several times Spanish and Portuguese ships. Then refit until the end of February 1941.|

(0) 36.02N, 09.42W.
|At 0936 hours, Mocenigo sighted a destroyer at 9-10,000 metres and altered course to attack. At 0954 hours, the destroyer apparently had also discovered the submarine and turned toward her. Mocenigo crash dived to 100 metres. The destroyer dropped four depth-charges at 1000 hours, two at 1006, three at 1014, eleven at 1018, fourteen at 1025, three at 1031 and three more at 1037 hours, but the submarine escaped damage. This was HMS Kelvin which was escorting the battleship HMS Royal Sovereign together with HMS Jaguar. The submarine had been sighted by the battleship at a range of 8 miles.|

|At 1215 hours, Mocenigo sighted smokes on the horizon at a distance of 20-25,000 metres. It appeared to be eight or nine steamers steering 150° at 7-8 knots. The submarine assumed a parallel course maintaining herself at the limit of visibility, with the intention of closing to the attack after dark. At 1430 hours, a destroyer was observed slightly closer, but frequent rain squalls made it difficult to maintain an adequate distance and contact was occasionally lost. At 2200 hours, contact was regained at a distance of 4,000 metres. |
At 2209 hours, two torpedoes (the first 533mm and the second 450mm) were fired in short succession from the bow tubes at one of three large steamers at distance of 600 metres. This was followed very quickly by two more torpedoes (533mm) aimed at a second steamer. A tall column of water appeared next to the first target, and a small explosion on the second target led Agostini to believe that both vessels had been hit.
At 2214 hours, Mocenigo had reverted course to fire two stern torpedoes (533mm) from a distance of 600-700 metres, each aimed at two steamers following the first trio. The first was hit and was capsizing. Agostini intended to fire another torpedo at an escort, but the warship opened fire, forcing the submarine to crash dive. Mocenigo had reached a depth of 60 metres when she was shaken by the explosions of two or three depth charges. She finally reached a depth of 95 metres when the electric motors were stopped.
In all, Agostini claimed to have sunk two steamers for a total of 19,000 GRT and damaged a third vessel of 8,000 GRT.
In fact, he had hit and sunk only one steamer, the Swedish Mangen (1,253 GRT, built 1934) from convoy O.G.47 (Liverpool to Gibraltar). Her crew had observed a torpedo to pass under her at 2114 hours but at 2117 hours another torpedo hit her squarely and she sank in 3 minutes. Eight men were killed, her survivors were picked up by the Swedish steamer Garm (1,231 GRT, built 1912). The escorting sloop HMS Leith reported that she had fired star shells but had been unable to detect the U-boat.

|At 1550 hours, at a distance of 10-11,000 metres, Mocenigo sighted a 3,000-ton steamer proceeding on a 120-130° course at 7-8 knots. Having closed to 5-6,000 metres, the submarine fired a warning shot, but the vessel did not stop and kept on her original course. At 1705 hours, the submarine opened fire at a range of 4-5,000 metres. The vessel turned away to port and opened fire with her stern gun. After three rounds, the submarine's forward gun had to stop firing as the heavy seas made it very difficult to man and her course prevented the aft gun to bear. The enemy's fire was becoming more accurate and at a distance of 4,500 metres, C.C. Agostini decided to break off the action and submerge.|
As the order was given, an enemy round hit the conning tower. The shock brought the hatch down and it could not be properly opened, but water seeped through it. The control room was filled with a yellow smoke. Agostini and the men on the bridge were in a precarious position. They could not enter the submarine or communicate with the personnel in the control room, as the shell had severed the interphone cable. A wave carried two ratings and they disppeared. Inside the submarine, it was realised that something had gone wrong and very quickly the diving order was countermanded.
Although Mocenigo had turned away using her electric motors, she was still under fire from the enemy vessel and the rounds were falling very close. One hit the conning tower in the upper kitchen area (used to cook pasta when surfaced), another exploded very close to the hull, peppering the conning tower with fragments. The submarine replied with her stern and machine guns, claiming one or two hits, but another wave carried away two ratings. In the meantime, the forward hatch had been opened, Agostini had managed to pass the order to get the diesels underway at full speed and the submarine finally pulled away.
The target had been the British Sarastone (2,473 GRT, built 1929) , on passage from Barry Docks to Gibraltar she was carrying 4,060 tons of coal and was a straggler of convoy O.G.47 due to boiler defects. She had replied with a 12-pdr gun (twenty-three rounds fired, and had only seven left after the action) when the range closed to 2,000 yds and then with a machine-gun. She was undamaged and escaped. Mocenigo's troubles were not over. A wave closed the forward hatch, forcing the diesels to temporarily shut down, but efforts finally managed to get the conning tower hatch opened, the interphone cable repaired and communications with the bridge finally re-established. A search was now made out for the four missing men but only one body was recovered. The mood in the submarine was somber as prayers for the dead men were read in the dark by the First Officer. The submarine returned to Bordeaux.

|9 Mar 1941||0100||48° 37'N, 13° 14'W||At 0100 hours, Mocenigo was informed that, at 1300 hours on the 8th, an aircraft had sighted a large convoy in Italian Grid 5689/42, course 250°, 7 knots. The submarine altered course to intercept Heavy seas prevented her from going more than 6 knots but, by morning she managed to increase speed to 10 knots and was trying to intercept on longitude 31°00' W. At 0504 hours the next day, Mocenigo [when in 51°00' N, 18°42' W] received a signal from Emo, indicating that an aircraft carrier with destroyers were sighted in Grid 3212, steering 210°, 15 knots. Agostini decided to abandon the chase.|
|19 Mar 1941||1155||53° 20'N, 24° 18'W||At 1155 hours, Mocenigo received a signal indicating that a convoy of 20-30 ships had been seen at 0845 hours on the 19th in 55°05' N, 12°35' W (Italian Grid 4031/14) course 240°, 7 knots. The submarine altered course to 100° at 12 knots to intercept. At 1310 hours on the 19th [when in 53°25' N, 24°27' W], another signal reported a German U-boat in contact at 1100 hours with a convoy of 25 vessels in Grid 0607/44 (54°35' N, ?°35 W) steering 230°, 8 knots and the submarine altered course to 105°.|
At 1905 hours on the 19th [Mocenigo was now in 53°14' N, 22°30' W], another signal now indicated a convoy of 20-30 ships at 1730 hours on the 19th in 54°25' N, 15°05' W (Grid 0645/13) steering 260°, 8 knots. Agostini decided to intercept the convoy signaled at 1100 hours on the 19th. However, as of 1029 hours on the 20th, nothing had been sighted.
|21 Mar 1941||1505||53° 52'N, 19° 25'W||Mocenigo was informed that a convoy had been seen at 1400 hours on the 21st in 51°55' N, 21°15' W (Italian Grid 2750/62) course 070°, 7 knots. The submarine altered course to 160° at 10 knots, to intercept the enemy 20 miles ahead. Agostini did not increase to 12 knots, as at this speed fuel consumption was twice that of 10 knots. At 2105 hours on the 21st (Mocenigo was then in 53°05' N, 18°05' W), she received a signal of a convoy at 1845 hours in 51°45 N, 19°45 W (Grid 2712/55), course 090°, 8 knots. Once again she altered course to 125°, but sighted nothing.|
|24 Mar 1941||1510||46° 13'N, 7° 45'W||An unidentified aircraft was sighted at 10,000 metres and the submarine dived.|

|At 1235 hours, a submarine was observed at a distance of 10-15 miles. Mocenigo turned away and made a recognition signal, but was it was not answered. At first, the other submarine appeared to move away but then returned to follow Mocenigo. At 1429 hours, Agostini decided to make a submerged attack as heavy seas precluded a gun duel. At periscope depth, the enemy submarine could not be seen and Agostini assumed she had also dived. Nothing could be heard with the hydrophones and at 1537 hours, the Italian submarine surfaced and resumed passage.|
The other submarine was HMS Pandora (Lt. Cdr. J.W. Linton), on passage from Gibraltar to Portsmouth. She had sighted the Italian submarine at a range of 7 miles, had not replied to her signals and fired off two 4-inch rounds at 12,000 yards (they must have fallen wide as they do not appear to have been observed by Mocenigo).
|26 May 1941||2100||34° 05'N, 8° 32'W||At 2100 hours, two fishing vessels were observed but left undisturbed.|
|27 May 1941||0817||34° 25'N, 8° 34'W||At 0817 hours, a 2,000-ton vessel was sighted at 10-15,000 metres. Mocenigo closed to 800 metres and then identified her as Spanish. The attack was aborted.|
|27 May 1941||1642||34° 11'N, 8° 19'W||At 1642 hours, a smoke was sighted on the horizon and later identified as a 3,000-ton Spanish vessel, proceeding on a 210° course at 7 knots. She was left undisturbed. During the following days, several Spanish or Portuguese vessels were sighted.|

|At 1918 hours on 29th May, Mocenigo altered course after being informed by BETASOM that at 1600 hours Argo was in contact with a convoy of ten ships escorted by a destroyer in 35°55' N, 06°55' W, steering 240°, 8 knots. At 0023 hours, Argo signaled that she had lost contact and an hour later Mocenigo had still failed to find anything but at 0440 hours, in 35°24' N, 08°21' W, a tanker was observed at a distance of 1,500 metres, steering of about 040°. Two minutes later, a torpedo was fired from tube no. 3. It left a very luminous track, but missed ahead.|
In the meantime, the submarine had reverted course and fired a stern shot, but it also missed and, once again she reverted course. At 0456 hours, a torpedo was fired from tube no. 1. It had an irregular course and also missed. Six minutes later, the submarine fired successively torpedoes from tubes no. 4 and no. 2 and heard two loud explosions. Mocenigo moved away but with the intention of renewing the attack. However, she lost contact. The tanker was British Yeoman (6,990 GRT, built 1923). She had initially reported being torpedoed but she arrived at Gibraltar with only slight damage (from what?). The destroyers HMS Forester and HMS Fury and four motor launches were sent to hunt the submarine but without success.

(0) Italian Grid 3915/26.
|At 1200 hours, the submarine Brin was encountered and there was a vocal exchange. She had not sighted the convoy and proposed to search for it on 180° course, while Mocenigo would do the same on a 360° course. At 1615 hours nothing was sighted and the chase was abandoned.|
