17 Feb 87 BFPS 2131 70th Anniversary of Sinking of U-83 by Q-Ship Farnborough Commander Campbell's Victoria Cross, Personally Signed Commander N I C Kettlewell Commodore HMS Drake 1987 ( Depot for Devonport ratings who manned HM Q Ship Farnborough ). Personally signed by Capt. Siefried Koitschka, Knight's Cross holder. Commandant 47, U-616. German cachet plus insert. After the commander training course in the 26th Flotilla, he became commander of the school boat U-7. But in December of the same year he took command of his own front boat, the Type VIIC U-boat U-616. After one patrol in the North Atlantic he managed to break through the Straits of Gibraltar in May 1943. After six patrols in the Mediterranean, where he sank a US destroyer in October 1943 and damaged two ships in May 1944 for a total of more than 17,000 tons (he claimed more sinkings, but they were not confirmed successes), he left Toulon on 30 April for his last patrol. Two weeks later, east of Cartagena, Spain, one of the longest U-boat hunting operations of the war took place. After torpedoing two ships, Koitschka with U-616 was located by US destroyers on 14 May, 1944. The next three days U-616 was attacked by the destroyer and also British Wellington aircraft before being forced to surface on the 17 May. All the crew survived the scuttling of the U-boat. Siegfried Koitschka spent more than two years in Allied captivity before he was released in June 1946.Detailed cachet added to the back of the cover.Certified Copy 16 of 45 .
