I can add, that U 154 had captured an Lieutenant who claims to be the CO of BOMBALA (this men died with the crew of U 154).

The officer was Sub-Lt. Eric Hugh Allan, who was from Cardiff. According to a local press report published some months later, he was taken prisoner by the U-boat because the Bombala's captain was wounded and the first officer had been killed. His date of death is given as 25/04/18, even though, as you say, he died later when U 154 was sunk.”
