Attacks on U-514 during this patrol

28 Sep 1942
During the night of 27/28 Sep. 1942, U-514 carried out two successful attacks on a small convoy of four merchant ships escorted by USS Roe (DD 418) while on the surface off the Amazon estuary. At 01.10 hrs, the U-boat had been forced to dive after being fired on by the Brazilian steam merchant Imediato João Silva, but succeeded in leaving the area without being attacked by the escort.
