On March 25, 1944 the submarine U 976 and its convoy V604, V624, were attacked by six Mosquitos and six Fortress II in the North West of the Island of Yeu.

The losses of each:
V624: 2 dead and 7 seriously injured (including 3 from the submarine)
V604: 2 dead and 10 critically injured
U976: 2 dead (+2 sailors missing with the submarine).
The 48 survivors are brought half on each V-Boots.

After this attack, the medical services of the 6 VP-flotilla and the 6 U-flotilla, aboard the Speerbrecher 168, came to meet the V604, V624, providing first aid to the wounded, the 48 survivors of the submarine, and dead back by the V-Boots.

Has anyone consulted the KTB of SP 168 today and is there any information? And is it in the archives?
