While outbound through the Bay of Biscay on May 6, 1943 Reeder's boat, the U-214, was heavily depth charged by a British Whitley bomber (10 OTU). Heavy machine-gunfire hit and severely wounded Reeder forcing him to abort his 2 days old patrol and put into Brest on May 10. A replacement captain, Rupperecht Stock, took the boat out again on May 19.

This was to be Reeder's last U-boat command
