Robert H. Colley / HX.209 / U 254

Hello,

I am slightly confused, from looking through the sources at my disposal, regarding the loss of the U.S. tanker <i>Robert H. Colley</i> in early October 1942. As far as I can tell, all sources seems to agree to the following:

- She was part of convoy HX.209
- She was torpedoed by U 254

so far there are no problems here except that U 254 made her attack at 14:32 hours on 03.10.42 in AK 5561, i.e. 56N/33W. This information is found in Rohwer and other sources.

Lloyd's War Losses, Browning and others place the attack at 16:40 hours on 04.10.42 (a day later) in position 59N/26W (quite some distance from the position reported by U 254).

I can't make head or tail of this, hopefully someone else can.

Regards
Jan-Olof
