The Lyrics

On August 27, 1941 a Hudson bomber forced U-570 to surrender because inexperienced Captain Rahmlow panicked and thought there was a chlorine gas leak after the Hudson dropped 4 depth charges on the sub. Only the lighting went out!!! The U-boat could have escaped unlike the earlier capture of damaged HMS Seal in 1940. The RN used it as repaired HMS Graph...
Bomber captured a U
In wartime

Inexperienced crew
Hudson spottin'
Depth charge droppin'

Rahmlow then did panic
Lighting system was out
Fear of chlorine gas
Made the captain doubt
(Being strafed, the boat could not hold out)

Bomber captured a U
In wartime
Second time*

Code books new
Enigma too
Off-boat crew threw
To prevent capture
Threat from air
The boat was beached
Would be fixed, vessel mattered
(HMS Graph, the latter)

Strange victory
Bomber captured a U
During wartime
(White flag surprised to see)
* second time aircraft captured a submarine. First was HMS Seal in 1940. Security code, no kidding- U57!!!

How did the bomber get his prize home?

Radioed for armed trawler as escort. U-boat was beached on purpose in Iceland. Later repaired, became HMS Graph. Arado Ar-196s plus a He-115 forced surrender of HMS Seal earlier in 1940.
