Claes Johnny17/03/2008On 16 Mar, 1941, U-99 attacked the convoy HX-112 several times and sank five ships, Venetia, J.B. White, Ferm, Beduin and Korshamn and damaged the Franche Comte. The U-boat was lost after these attacks. Attempts to save the Beduin (Master Hans Hansen) failed, because she broke in two in 61°20N/11°55W. The forepart was shelled and sunk by a British trawler in 61°02N/11°53W on 19 March, while theafterpart was sunk in 61°07N/10°50W on 20 March.

20 survivors were picked up by the escorts, while ten others were put ashore at Fleetwood by the Icelandic trawler Hilmir on 23 March.
