U333 Peter Erich Cremer - The Three Fish - Aged
The boat fought an epic battle with the British corvette HMS Crocus on 6 Oct, 1942. The U-boat lost 3 men dead (including the IWO) and several men wounded, including the commander, Peter Erich Cremer. The boat was heavily damaged and limped back to base with help from a replacement WO, Kptlt. Lorenz Kasch, from the U-107. The doctor from the Milk Cow U-459 helped the wounded. Cremer then spent 3 months in a hospital.
