John, Ted etc.

I have not read the citation for the medal, but Ted's account fills the gap
- I based my comments on the list of U-Boats known to have been lost and the
causes - no German submarine was lost on 9th August 1942. The nearest is
U-379, sunk 8 August by HMS Dianthus by depth charge and ramming in the North
Atlantic, and the next is not until 20th August, when U-464 was sunk by a PBY
Catalina flying boat off Iceland ......
