THILO BODE (304-1987)
THILO BODE was I.W.O.
aboard U-505 during the time that Peter Zschesch was the
Skipper. One of the crew of U-505 told us that
BODE was always taking the headlines away from Zschesch and that,
coupled with the constantly aborted patrols of U-505 and
other factors, contributed to the breakdown of Zscheche during an attack
by a Royal Navy destroyer - and Zscheche committed suicide.

After the end of the war and finishing his
time in P.o.W. camp, BODE emigrated to England and became a journalist.
