U-108 Operational Timeline

25 Jun 1941 In the North Atlantic Ocean at 0620 hours, German submarine U-108 (Kapitšnleutnant Klaus Scholtz) sank 4,362-ton Greek merchant steamer Ellinico, dispersed from Allied convoys OG-65 and sailing in ballast, with a torpedo amidships; she sank within three minutes with no survivors. At 1614 hours, U-108 struck again, sinking Greek merchant steamer Nicolas Pateras, dispersed from Allied convoy OB-336, with a torpedo amidships followed by gunfire between 1713 hours and 1755 hours, in heavy seas and strong wind.
