False torpedo observations?
Date: September 14, 2020 09:37AM

Can someone shed some light on the fact that some ships (both in the Baltic and Black Sea) hade registered that they had been attacked by uboats/torpedo but in the records there are no attacks registered. They would be called false observations. Im especially referring to some observations in January and February in the baltic. The attacked ships where the Swedish "Landsort" (31 January 1945) and (on 2 February)"Gute" (freighter). According to HMA the were no attacks carried out these dates. I have read somewhere that false observations were common... Can someone shed some light on the matter om false observations? How common were they? What would be the cause of such observations? Currents? Other?

Cheers, J
