Attack UJ-1703.

Hi,

Colleagues.

In the SKL Diaries I found the following information:
5 march 1944.
In the evening the submarine chaser UJ-1703 was sunk by torpedo plane off Lindesnes. Fifty-two survivors, among them the Commanding Officer and the 1st watchkeeping Officer were rescued.

Please help to establish which aircraft of which squadron of the Coastal Command sank this ship. I did not find a description in the documents of 455, 404 and 489 squadrons.

I would say that it was No. 489 Squadron a bit north west of Lindenes
