German Sub U-559

This was the U-boat which yielded invaluable Enigma materials as it was sinking on October 30, 1942. 

Three members of the Royal Navy boarded the vessel to retrieve whatever materials they could find.  What they did find shortened the war. 

Two of the three young men lost their lives when they went down with 599
