Previously recorded fate
Lost in a minehandling accident off Dunbar, Scotland. The wreck at that location is undoubtedly that of U 74.
There was another U 77 in World War Two
That boat was launched from its shipyard on 23 Nov 1940 and commissioned into the Kriegsmarine on 18 Jan 1941. Take a look at the U 77 from WWII.
