Operation is continuing against both convoys. So far the following have broken off: U 468, 91, 435, 638, 653, 89, 758, 664, 603, 665, 616, 600, 6 of these because of lack of fuel. 

b) 
U 306, 592, 181, 415, 663, 572, 564 and 260 have been ordered to be in patrol line from AK 3152 to 3671, as Group "Seeteufel", at first light on 21/3. Boats are not to take up their positions earlier than ordered in order to prevent their being detected prematurely by enemy aircraft; until then they have freedom of action. U 260 is further off and will therefore reach the line later. It is intended to operate the group against the ONS expected on 22.3 and if this is not intercepted, they will proceed S.W. as reconnaissance line. U 564, 572, and 663 are in the vicinity of convoy No. 19 but they are not to operate against it, as there are already too many boats and are only to make use of any opportunity arising and then proceed on their way to the line ordered. 

c) 
U 405, 448 and 566 have refueled from U 119 for return passage at economical speed. 

d) 
None.
