General Events during this patrol


18 Jun 1942. Saboteur landings in America
The boat departed Brest, France for a very special patrol on 25 May, 1942. On 18 June, after crossing the Atlantic (submerged by day, surfaced at night) they landed a saboteur team of 4 men on the shore just south of Jacksonville, Florida. This was one of two such teams that landed within a week of each other on the US east coast; the other team came aboard U-202. They were to be the first of many such planned operations. The boat then returned safely to Brest on 22 July.
