Destroyer Escort USS Bronstein (DE 189)

1 Mar 1944 (position 48.55, -26.10)
A depth charge attack carried out by the US destroyer escort USS Bronstein in the North Atlantic, in position 48°55'N, 26°10'W, was actually directed against a non-sub target and could not have been responsible for the destruction of the German U-boat U-603 as earlier thought.
