Captain Donald MacIntyre It is interesting to
note that the commanding officer of the destroyer H.M.S. Hesperus, which was so
instrumental in the rescue of the survivors, was Captain Donald MacIntyre.
Just over 4 months later, in March, 1941, MacIntyre (in command of another
destroyer, H.M.S. Walker)
would finally corner and sink U-99,
southeast of Iceland, taking "Silent Otto" and most of his crew as
prisoners of war.
