History  
Notes on event

At 17.36 hours on 30 July 1944, U-481 fired a Gnat at group of coastal minesweepers in the Narva Bay and observed a hit after 35 seconds and saw the KT-804 (No 35) sink. At 17.40 hours, a second Gnat was fired, which detonated after 1 minutes 55 seconds. Andersen could not observe the sinking of the KT-807 (No 42), but he saw how the damaged KT-806 was towed away. The U-boat later found wreckage at the site.
