It would be appropriate to supply links to tools you use, such as this codebook tool you refer to.

I have started. But so far all I get in the plain text is a load of gibberish. I'm pretty postitive that everything is set up.

Please double check your original settings.

Also, what do you mean by use the word LiLi??

I also have begun. His message is very confusing. It was coded improperly, but I am making progress.

I've been able to translate these sections. Note where I've broken them up, at the beginning of each break, reset the rotors to LILI. This last section is being a PITA...

Yes I have a feeling I was on the right track and then the plain text descends into gibberish - something to do with a Corvette and a battle?

What I have so far:

UBOAT FOUGHT AN EPIC BATTLE
WITH THE BRITISH CORVETTE
HMS CROCUS

THREE MEN DEA
WO BERNHARD HEINZ KURZE
ERWIN LEVERMANN
SEVERAL MEN WOUNDED INCLUDING
OUR KALEUN PETER ERICH CREMER

THE BOAT IS HEAVILY DAMAGE
NOT ABLE TO DIVE WE ARE
RETURNING TO BASE WITH
THE HELP FROM A REPLACEMENT
WO FROM U ONE ZERO SEVEN
THE DOCTOR FROM MILKCOW



THE FIRST KALEUN TO DECODE TH

I believe the list of names was decoded correctly, but without knowing what names I'm to be looking for it's difficult to separate them.

Edit: seperated some of the names listed, as it just hit me what it should look like.

I have the Enigmasim program and the codebook tool but to decode this properly I need to know which model of enigma machine is being used.

Thanks,

Sorry about fellow kaleuns.

It should be clearer. This is the codebook he is using. Download it, flip to October 1942, find the entry for the 6th and use the settings found there.
