Chris,

I'm not exactly sure how UC 61 suffered a shell hit — as you say, conventional accounts don't mention this and it certainly would change the story. There's another possibility: the shell hit could have come some time after UC 61 went aground and was abandoned. Say some patrol vessel sees the wreck later and opens fire only to then realize that it’s an aground, blown up U-boat. I equally don't have an evidence that this actually happened just that it's a possibility to consider.

Best wishes,
Michael
