Official Caption: "OUT OF THE BRINY INTO CAPTIVITY: Coast Guardsmen aboard a combat cutter protecting an Atlantic convoy help peel the dripping garments from Nazi seamen picked up from the sea after their Uboat had been depth charged and sunk. The Coast Guard cutter spotted the submarine attempting to slink close to the convoy and dropped the deadly pattern of depth charges. Forty-one Nazis were captured by two Coast Guard cutters."
