The salvage of U-boat 534 ('U- boat holds on to secrets as opening is delayed', 25 August), sunk on the same day under similar conditions and carrying 'senior Nazis', caused me to search the lists of U-boat records for those lost on that date. There were five.
It is an exceptional toll. Were these all crossing the Kattegat with high-ranking officials and their loot?
