WW2 still had some honour in it:

"U-128 surfaced after the attack and supplied the survivors with bread and brandy after interrogating them briefly"

Wow Bones. Great find!. Ive been reading through the Interrogation document now for a solid 30mins. Alas I have so much other work to get done http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif. But you've granted some great bed-time reading http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Cheers bud.

Yes, great find - well and truly bookmarked! Just this one report has the makings of "Das Boot II".

One other point of interest (well, to me at least) was the reported power output of the radio - 5kW !! When I was on submarines (1970s), I had 1 x 100w transmitter and 1 x 500w. Presumably the Germans used quite low frequencies for their "schaltungs" (circuits), what we would call MF (Medium Frequency) i.e. around 2MHz to 4MHz, which would need as much power as possible - higher freqs need far less power for long ranges.
