12 Jun 1942
While crossing the Bay of Biscay during daylight on 12 June 1942 the boat was attacked by an Australian Sunderland flying boat (10 Sqn RAAF). The U-boat immediately sought shelter at El Ferrol, Spain and did not leave until the 28th when she sailed for Lorient, arriving on the 30th. The damage was serious enough to keep her there until 23 Nov.
