U−Boat sinkings by Captain Class Frigates

We have not included other ships (non Captain) or aircraft which were involved in the destruction of some of the U-Boats. In addition Captain Class Frigates which operated with our Coastal Forces, (Motor Torpedo Boats and Motor Gun Boats) sank three two Man Submarines, and were involved in the destruction of 20 - 30 E-Boats, One KFK Lighter, Two Minesweepers, and the shooting down a Junkers 88 Bomber.

This is a revised list of U-Boat sinkings in the light of new information.
