Hallo TW,

Zitat
17 Jun 1941
In approximate position 43°24'N 10°12'E (about 5 nautical miles South-West of Livorno) HrMs O 24 (Lt.Cdr. O. de Booy, RNN) fired three torpedoes at the Italian tanker Caucaso (2082 GRT, built 1921), the torpedoes however missed the target.

(All times are zone -1)
 0600 hours - Sighted a merchant vessel stearing 140° about 6 nautical miles away. Started attack.

0630 hours - The target altered course to 090°. O 24 increased speed to close the range.

0650 hours - Fired three torpedoes from 2000 yards. The target was meanwhile seen to be a 7000 tons laden Italian tanker. One of the torpedoes (again a Mark IV) surfaced several times and must have been seen by the target that turned away and increased speed.

According to Italian sources the tanker sighted the three torpedo tracks and reported the attack. Coastal traffic was immediately suspended between La Spezia and Civitavecchia and MAS boats and aircraft joined for a hunt of the submarine but without success.
