Attacks on U-106 during this patrol

1 Aug 1943
The boat was attacked by a British B-24 Liberator (59 Sqn RAF/K, pilot F/L M. Charlton) in the Bay of Biscay. No damage from the two depth charges dropped, but strafing killed one crewman and wounded two others. [Matrosengefreiter Rolf Ebeling]

2 Aug 1943
The boat was attacked by a Canadian Wellington (407 Sqn RCAF/C) in the Bay of Biscay and straddled by six depth charges, one of which one actually bounced off the stern and exploded close nearby. Severe damage forced U-106 to make for port, and despite at first managing to keep the shadowing aircraft at a distance, other Allied forces vectored to the area located and sank her in the evening.
