Name:Castleton
Type:Steam trawler
Tonnage:211 tons
Date:28 Jun 1940Nationality:      British
 
U-boat:U-102
Notes: U-102 did not return from patrol, but it was earlier thought that this U-boat had sunk the trawler Castleton which was reported missing in the same area the U-boat operated. Newer research shows that the trawler was in fact bombed and sunk by a German Do17Z aircraft of 3./K├╝stenfliegergruppe 606 east of the Orkney Islands at 09.30 hours on 28 June 1940. 

This vessel was removed from our ships attacked databases after further research the data more closely.
