Was Eastlea sunk by U-48 or U-106?
November 7, 2012
Hi Im from ST.Johns Newfoundland Canada. I was reading a post on AHOY-MACS WEB LOG today from someone who said his father was in the Eastlea and it was sunk by U-48 with a Capt Herr Schultze. (see "Father sailed as 2nd Officer on SS Eastlea, sunk by U-48"). My grandfather was also in the Eastlea and I read it was sunk by U-106 Capt Jurgen Oesten. Do you know the right story?
Thank-you for reading this and if you answer
According to the U-Boat net, Eastlea was sunk by UB-106
Hope this helps.
