✠ Joachim Schepke, one of Germany's most capable of U-boat commanders. On March 9th 1941 Schepke left Kiel on what was to be his last patrol. His U-100 was incapacitated by depth charges. An allied destroyer then purposely rammed the crippled U-boat, killing Schepke and most of his crew. Seventh recipient of the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross with Oak Leaves.
