Second Chance

Just finished is this study of Lt. Johansen and Fern. Hulmen, in 333 Sqn Mosquito HP864, attacking U-998 on 16th June 1944. They came in at very low level and dropped two depth charges which crippled the sub, forcing it to be written off when it got back to base. The details of this attack have been extensively researched by leading Norwegian historians making it a faithful depiction of the events on that day.
