The first charge of this pattern produced a distinctly prolonged explosion. The attack produced a small but steady flow of oil, a sample of which has been collected. Viceroy’s fourth and last attack was carried out at 2113 hrs. SS Athelduke sank slowly in position 55 36′ 04 N, 01 27′ 05 W. The bows remained visible, bearing 249 degrees, 3,200 yards from the contact. The bearing was checked each time the ship passed over the contact in the last three attacks. The 30th Escort Group arrived in the area, and HMS Launceston Castle carried out a Squid attack on the contact at about 2157. Viceroy then set course to rej oin the convoy. On returning to this wreck on 24 April, Viceroy again attacked and evidence, including a bottle of brandy made in Heilbron, was recovered. The wreck of U 1274 is reported to be standing upright on a clean, well-swept sand and stone seabed in a general depth of 63 m (LAT).
