History

The 27th Flotilla was founded in January 1940. There new U-boat crews received their tactical training (Taktische Ausbildung Unterseeboote) and absolved a 8 to 15 day tactical practice ( Taktische Übung ).

This was a simulated convoy battle in the Baltic Sea and it was possible, that a boat had to absolve this practice twice or more, or until the boat reached satisfying results. U-109 needed during the spring of 1941 two attempts, before the boat was declared ready for combat. The 27th flotilla was the last training station for the new U-boats. The flotilla history ended in March 1945, when the flotilla was disbanded.
