Attacks on U-283 during this patrol

10 Feb 1944
Aircraft attack, aircraft shot down:
British Wellington (RAF Sqdn 612/N, pilot F/O R.E. Durnford)

The boat reported successfully repulsing an aircraft attack with AA fire at 21.10hrs, but did not claim the aircraft shot down. However, the attacker was apparently Wellington N for Nan from Squadron 612, which reported engine trouble from this area at that time before going missing with the crew of six. U-283 was sunk by another Wellington the following day.
