Leslie B. Tollaksen, USCGC Chelan, USS Moberly, and the Last Battle in the Atlantic, May 5/6, 1945 — Chuck Hill’s CG Blog

Sunday, March 28, 2021@11:57-Great Blog, and YES, there were U-boats in American and Canadian Waters, PRIOR to V.E. Day/May, 08, 1945, and after; as U-190 and another German U-boat SURRENDERED in Canadian Waters, near the end of May/1945, and as U.S.S. Moberly and i think U.S.S. Natchez-sank a U-Boat near May 6-7, 1945 also. I may be wrong, though I think TWO U-Boats, or maybe a FEW more, SURRENDERED of the East Coast of America/North Atlantic, in May, 1945. I do NOT have NO Research Sources in front of me, at this time…so this is only a Hopefully Positive guess. I do, more than precisely NOT AGREE with ANY U-Boat GIVEN the ORDER to SURRENDER, as early as April, 3-4, 1945…as this WOULD SEEM FICTION FORMAT, at the LEAST. So TWO U-Boats to the R.C.N., at the ending of May, 1945, and TWO-or maybe i need to be CORRECTED, to the U.S. Navy in May, 1945. You may want to use as a SOURCE of RESEARCH…Axis Submarine SUCCESSES/1939-1945, by Jurgen ROHWER, as it STATES the sinking of Eagle 56, and ALL other WARSHIPS…ESCORT VESSELS…MERCHANT SHIPS sunk by U-Boats in W.W.II. My late father’s WARSHIP…H.M.C.S. Carlplace K664, was attacked by U-190, after W.U.B.,/SHAKEDOWN in Bermuda, and STEAMING back to Canada INDEPENDENTLY, K 664, was attacked 20 Nautical Miles, at the Sambro Light Ship, out of Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. Another River Class Frigate-H.M.C.S. LEVIS K400, was sent out to assist in the HUNT, though, after much RESEARCH…by Mr. Keith Cuffling SUBMARINE DETECTOR/K664, and myself-as I already knew the fact, U-190 was the U-Boat that attacked K664, and to this FUC.ING DAY…as other Naval Researchers of W.W.II, i do seriously ACKNOWLEDGE that U-190, on March 24, 1945, at 16:00 , and the AFTER AFFECT of the ATTACK, more than precisely HID, and was HIDING…DIRECTLY BELOW THE SAMBRO LIGHT SHIP-which was used for a Navigational Beacon, etc., FOR WARSHIPS, and Merchant Vessels, etc., ENTERING the Port of Halifax…the Halifax, Nova Scotia APPROACHES. Anyways, I would comment on about 4-6 U-Boats in Canadian-American East Coast Atlantic waters, from about Dec., 1944 to May, 1945, though, CERTAINLY NOT A DOZEN…12 U-Boats.

Another Great book for Research is Death of the U-Boats…by Edwin P. Hoyt, which states U-Boats sunk by Allied Warships/Allied Aircraft, during W.W.II/1939-1945, and a nice back jacket, etc., back pages, with all LISTED!!!

Bravo Zulu, to U.S.S. Moberly, U.S.S. Natchez, for their U-Boats sunk with all hands; and YES-100 PERCENT FOR SURE… their were more than precisely GERMAN U-Boats, in Canadian and American Northern East Coast…North Atlantic waters; until SURRENDER…in late May, 1945!!!
