U-862 was the only u-boat that I came close to
and strangely it had the same experience as the
Trinidad. On the way to Penang she launched a T5/G7es Zaunkönig I acoustic homing torpedo at a tanker. The Zaunkönig came around full circle to home in on U-862. Only an emergency crash dive saved the U-boat from its own torpedo.
But John, settling in Alaska after those icy
wartime waters? Brrrrr
