Today in Coast Guard History – February 21st

  • 1943- The USS Spencer, CG, received credit from the U.S. Navy for attacking and sinking the U-225 in the North Atlantic. The British have since recorded that the U-225 was actually destroyed by B-24 Liberator “S” of RAF No. 120 Squadron on 15 February 1943 and they have revised the official British records to reflect this change. The renowned German naval historian, Professor-Dr. Jurgen Rohwer, stated that the Spencer “probably” attacked and sank the U-529 instead, although the Spencer has not received official credit for that sinking.
