Gottfried Fischer (U-505)
Tonight, while we ran on the surface, the sea was exceptionally vicious. Sea state 6-7. The boat rolls and pitches even at depths of 7 - 20 metres. And then we sit (or rather stand) in our radio room and monitor our equipment, and fret whether the enemy has already detected us. It is tiresome work. We are on a south-westerly heading of 120°.
