Ah, the U-110, and with all due kudos to the intrepid crew of the HMS Bulldog, if memory serves correctly. And by the way, apologies for that Hollywood abomination, "U-571" while we're at it. Some of us over here, at least those with some appreciation for history, were as appalled with that one as you guys probably were. We captured an Enigma as well, but much later in the war. June 5th, 1944, from the U-505 off the coast of N. Africa. Been on board that boat, and it now resides in the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry. One of the very few decent reasons to visit that city, I might add. Yeah, I'm a WWII sub buff and history fanatic.
Give me a shout if the 260s don't turn up in due time. I don't deal with the UK, but I can ask the folks who do, no problem.
