Kurt Rebs was a sailor aboard U-456 when that boat torpedoed and damaged HMS EDINBOROUGH in the North Sea, causing the cruiser to lose a lot of its speed.  A trio of German destroyers caught the cruiser and although two of them were destroyed, the cruiser also went to the bottom - carrying hundreds of tons of gold with it - the Soviet gold reserves were being transported to England for safe keeping.

         
                             
Kurt Rebs

Don't rush out to salvage the gold - it's already been done, even from 800 feet down in the North Sea.  After serving aboard U-456 for some time, Kurt was transferred to U-20.
