Here is a series of profiles of Type VII bridge profiles, from Robert C. Stern's Type VII U-Boats. I *think* U-454 likely woul have had something like the Turm II (third example, left-hand column, but with the two single 20mm guns on the upper bandstand (widened to accommodate them), with the single, twin 20mm mount on the aft, lower one. Maybe that arrangement was garbled in the interrogation report.

There is also a great image of the boat's bridge here, although it appears to have been taken before the expanded flak mounts were fitted:

Good luck!
