Gottfried Fischer (U-505)

The heat inside the boat is unbearable. Sweat is pouring down my body as I write. In the radio room it never gets below 38° C. The stale and fetid air makes it all even worse. We have only one consolation: in 5 - 6 days the heat will become less. The day after tomorrow we will head back home.
