Operation Kurfürst (i)


'Kurfürst' (i) was a U-boat wolfpack operation in the Atlantic (16/20 June 1941).

The boats of this wolfpack were U-43, U-73, U-201, U-204 and U-371, and for the loss of none of its own number sank one ship of the SL.76 convoy. This was the 2,727-ton British Cathrine, which was torpedoed by Kapitänleutnant Wolfgang Lüth’s U-43 on 17 June.
