|163||U-256 left Brest on September 3, 1944, and passed through the Channel to reach Bergen.||U-256 left Brest on September 4, 1944, and went up through the Denmark Straits, which accounts for the length of the journey. With the four forward torpedo tubes removed and the torpedo doors sealed up, to pass through the Channel would have amounted to suicide at the time.|
