U-959

Shown here is the Type VIIC boat U-959 under attack in the early afternoon by a Swordfish aircraft of No. 842 Squadron operating from the escort carrier HMS Fencer. U-959 left Narvik on 22 April 1944, on its second war cruise commanded by Oberleutnant zur See Martin Duppel. The operation took place about 360 miles west of the Lofoten Islands. The photo shows U-959 being attacked with a stick of three depth charges. All fifty-three crew members were lost. Ref: ADM 199/206
