General Events during this patrol
8 Feb 1941. U-37 located convoy HG 53 late on 8 Feb 1941. She opened attack on the 9th and sank three ships over the next two days, also calling in Fw Condor aircraft from 2/KG 40 which sank another five ships on the 9th. The heavy cruiser Hipper was also vectored to the position, but by the time she arrived on the 11th there only remained a solitary straggler for her to sink.
