Kptlt. Wilhelm Schulz and U-124 was lost on Sept. 3 1942 in grid BF13 to 4 DD's. She did not leave without a fight, she gave the Royal Navy a nice big anaversy presint, a sunken Bouge CVE. So god bless Kleun Schulz and the crew of U-124, for they are on eternal patrol.http://foolstown.com/sm/shv.gif

On my last patrol I was operating off the NW of Portugal in Grid BE99. I was alerted to a Task Force running due south headed in my direction. I then made a final course correction to try and intercept the Task Force in the hope of getting something out of it.

I finally made contact and stayed on the surface trying to coax some extra speed at the already straining diesels, when I decided to attack the lead BB, HMS Rodney, at a range of 3000 to 4000 meters. I finally made it to 3200 meters and after feeling I pushed my luck far enough I ordered periscope depth and decided to press my attack submerged. I fired off 2 seperate salvos of 2 fish each, the 1st salvo set at magnetic on fast speed setting. The second brace were set to 4m depth with impact fuses, again on fast speed setting. The first brace hit under the superstructure and seemed to make no effect, the 2nd salvo hit within the forward gun turret area, again no immediate impression seen apart from a sudden drop in speed of HMS Rodney.

Torpedo Impact!

http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n235/Goose_Green/2a.jpg

Now that the small TF had been alerted they soon made off zig zagging away while the battered and bruised HMS Rodney made way on reduced power with a noticable list to starboard. One of the DD's remained behind who had smelt their prey, I had already reached about 165 meters in depth and quietly ordered silent running at 3 knots. Several passes by the DD revealed no close calls, obviously I had dived much deeper than the depth charges had been set to. Just to make sure I ordered a gradual change in depth to about 180 meters and increased my speed - confident that I could evade whatever the DD could throw at me.

DD fires off a star shell in the vain search for me while HMS Rodney slowly moves away.

http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n235/Goose_Green/3-6.jpg

After losing the irritating DD I was able to increase my speed and finally caught up with the beleagered Battleship, and happy no escorts were near I ordered periscope depth and prepared to deliver the coup de grace at the slow moving BB.

Good show, goose!

One thing is finding these beasts, but nailing them is a another. They travel so fast and are usually escorted by half the Royal Navy, so you probably only get one chance to strike before the escorts start banging you around.
