The video in the attached link comes close to home so to speak. On May 9 1942 the USCGC Icarus sank U352. 33 Germans were taken prisioner.Ad Monford was a crewman on the Icarus that day. Just 3 days later HMT Bedfordshire was sunk by U558 about 12 miles away. 27 August 1944 LST 327 was hit by an acoustic torpedo from U92 and damaged, Ad was a crewman on the 327 at the time. U92 was damaged beyond repair 6 weeks later.
