Attacks on U-372 during this patrol
5 Aug 1941
After sinking two ships from the heavily escorted convoy SL 81 the boat was attacked in turn by its third intended victim, the British freighter Volturo, which also brought in the escort corvette HMS Zinnia, which fired on U-372 and made to ram her. The boat managed to dive, and escaped unscathed. (Sources: Blair, vol 1, page 333)
