TMO. November '43. Was getting gang-banged by three escorts so I waded into the gaggle of freighters to throw off escort sensors and maybe force a collision. Was workin' it hard to stay directly under a freighter. The hydrophone was doin' a pretty good job of updating so I'm sure there was no escort in range to depth charge me. I hear 5 maybe 6 depth charge drops. I don't worry or evade cuz I'm stickin to my plan of staying under a freighter until I can drop out. I figure the escorts are takin' pot shots tryin' to ferret me out. Suddenly, loud explosions and screams for the medic. What gives? Did freighters start carrying depth charges during the war?
