Type-IXc Sea Strainer Valve

Hello everyone,
I am new to this website and forum. I remember my fascination with U-boats as far back as the 6th grade in the early 70's. I have read some material throughout the years and tonight I discovered this wonderful website. Let me cut to the question that has always been on my mind... the sea strainer valve closed by two of Captain Gallery's boarding party (Zenon Lukosius and Wayne Pickels) on June 4 was in the control room, but I read there were more sea strainer valves... can anyone tell me where the others were located?

I do have a copy of Steel Boat Iron Hearts by Hans Goebeler at home, but I just haven't had the chance to read it.

Thanks in advance!
