Notes on event
USS Frederick C. Davis (DE 136) was participating in the operation Teardrop, a hunt for snorkel-equipped U-boats in the Western Atlantic and was part of the 4th Escort Division, which screened the escort carrier USS Bogue (CVE 9) in the Southern Surface Barrier.

On 24 Apr, 1945, U-546 discovered USS Bogue about 570 miles east-southeast of Cape Race and tried to attack on periscope depth, but USS Frederick C. Davis discovered the U-boat and prepared herself for an attack. At this moment a Gnat struck forward on the port side. The ship broke in two and sank quickly with the bow and stern raising into the air. The crew abandoned ship and were picked up within three hours by the other escort destroyers of the Division, after they had sunk U-546.
