Attacks on U-177 during this patrol

6 Jun 1943
While tailing a convoy off the SW coast of Africa in heavy fog, the boat suddenly found itself revealed amidst the convoy and rapidly came under fire from the convoy ships. A Canadian Catalina flying boat (413 Sqn RCAF) also dropped three bombs on the boat, which narrowly escaped. (Sources: Blair, vol 2, page 301)
