Last signal from U-1023

To: Grand-Admiral

In course of 46-day schnorkel assignment, we have sunk 1 merchantman of 8,000 tons & 1 destroyer. Also torpedoed 1 ship of 10,000 tons & 1 ship of 8,000 tons. In firm reliance on you, Grand-Admiral, we are about to carry out your hardest order (surrender of U-boats to Allies).
