Attacks on U-422 during this patrol
23 Sep 1943
The boat was depth charged and strafed by an allied aircraft identified as a Halifax. Three men were wounded, two of them seriously. After requesting medical assistance the boat rendezvoused with milch cow U-460 on the 29th of September. (Sources: Blair, vol 2, page 424)
4 Oct 1943
While being refuelled by U-460 (along with U-264 and U-455) the boats were attacked by Avenger aircraft from the escort carrier USS Card. After putting up heavy flak the smaller VIIC boats dived, leaving U-460 on the surface. She was destroyed when she also tried to dive. U-422 was then attacked later in the day and sunk.
