                  The attached reports of attacks on U.110 and another U-boat on 9th May, 1941, from H.M. SHIPS AUBRETIA and BROADWAY, are forwarded in accordance with C.A.F.O. 834/41.  
     
          2.     The evidence given by the prisoners, and the identification of Johan Wolf indicate that another U-boat was operating close to U.110 and that it may have been this other boat which was attacked and damaged by H.M.S. AUBRETIA at 1206.  
     
          3.     The shock of depth charges explosions caused the battery switches in H.M.S. AUBRETIA'S Board, Charge-Discharge to fly to the "OFF" position.  Steps have been taken to ensure that these contacts are held more firmly when switched "ON".  
     
          4.     H.M.S. BROADWAY'S action in dropping two depth charges under U.110 may have had the desired effect as no efforts appear to have been made by the Germans to ensure that their boat would sink.  
     
          6.     H.M.S. AUBERTIA is commended for the effective part she played.  Her Asdic recorder traces are examples of good operating.
