Hello Jan-Olof and Brian,

I believe that in the URSULA's report, the position relating to the two explosions heard at 0852-0854 is an error and should probably read 4632' N, 0555' W (instead of 4532' N, 0555' W). In the same report her position at noon was 4631' N, 0600' W and at 1811/13 as 4633' N, 0524' W. So clearly she could not have been in latitude 4532' N as she was submerged by day and would not have travelled this distance in a about three hours. It is likely that the two explosions heard were two torpedoes by UNIQUE hitting the bottom unless an aircraft carried out a bombing attack on the submarine. Many thanks to you both for shedding new light on this attack.

Best regards,

Platon
