Torpedo attack.

(1/2) > >>

peter.r:
According to the website naval-history.net the Royal Navy cruisers HMS SOUTHAMPTON and HMS GLASGOW with 3 escorting destroyers had 2 torpedo's fired at them,this happened on 5th Sept 1939 about 20 miles off UTVAER on the Norwegian coast.This is the only site that gives this infomation,is it right or were the lookouts wrong and only thought they saw torpedo's?.

Leutnant Werner:
The only submarine, which could have fired the two torpedos in question, was U 20 (Möhle), which was on patrol off the southern Norwegian coast from september 1 to september 20. If it really launched the torpedos against the Humber force I don´t know.

Thank you lieutenant werner for your reply,do you know if U20s ktb is on the web ?.
