German Zerstoerer 1 (D170)

After Zerstoerer 1 was in dock in Philadelphia from May 28 until June 12 all three German destroyers (Z 1, Z 2, Z 3) joined in with American units for a training period, in which the aircraft carrier USS Wasp took part as well. These exercises were interrupted on July 12 in order to search for survivors of a USAF plane which had crashed north-easterly of Boston. Although strongly hampered by fog, the crew of Zerstoerer 1 was able to rescue three survivors and took aboard six bodies.
