"The discovery of a World War I German submarine off the Scottish coast has thrown light on one of the greatest mysteries of the conflict: Did the
Loch Ness monster attack a U-boat?"
This isnt the first story I have heard of U Boats and sea monsters recorded by German Officers
It wasn’t until the Germans were brought aboard and the U-boat captain, a Captain Gunther Krech, was questioned that the reason became both clearer
and more bizarre. Krech allegedly reported that the submarine had surfaced during the night for the purpose of recharging its batteries, during which
there had been a violent surge of frothing water off the starboard bow. When Kech and some crew members had gone to investigate, a creature the
captain described as a “strange beast” had suddenly erupted forth from the cold, dark water and begun clambering up the side of the ship, which
had caused the whole submarine to start listing to the side. The beast was described as being enormous, with a small head with large eyes deeply set
in a horned skull and a large mouth with sharp teeth that glinted in the moonlight. This strange monster was then claimed to have reached the forward
mount gun and to have begun ferociously attacking it, chomping down on the weapon with its formidable jaws and thrashing back and forth.
"At that moment I had with me in the conning tower six of my officers of the watch, including the chief engineer, the navigator, and the helmsman.
Simultaneously we all drew one another's attention to this wonder of the seas, which was writhing and struggling among the debris. We were unable to
identify the creature, but all of us agreed that it resembled an aquatic crocodile, which was about 60-feet long, with four limbs resembling large
webbed feet, a long, pointed tail and a head which also tapered to a point. Unfortunately we were not able to take a photograph, for the animal sank
out of sight after ten or fifteen seconds."

I always find these things interesting.
If I was a U Boat commander and was captured, a story about a sea monster would not be something I would say to excuse myself, unless...
