Lieutenant Schreder credited with “sure kill” – U-158

When they were directly overhead they saw their second Depth Charge actually hit the U-Boat.

This attack was delivered after radar contact made while the plane was flying above scattered cumulus clouds. Visibility was unlimited and the pilot found himself in ideal position for attack when the U-boat was sighted visually. Surprise of the U-boat was apparently complete.
