English Channel
RN MTBs attack Kriegsmarine 34th Motor Minesweeping Flotilla overnight, sinking minesweeper M-3413

Following L. Reynolds (Home Waters, p 150) it was the 21st Flotilla with MTB 234,224,225,232 attackimg two armed trawlers off Scheveningen. On German side (following DDK VIII, p. 357) it is stated that PETRONELLA (ex SCH 314) was sunk by MTB near Scheveningen.
Best regards
Thomas

P.S The attack of the 4th Flotilla with MTB 458,467,469 has occured on 13.07.1944 against 4 trawlers (one of them claimed sunk) near Ijmuiden (Reynolds, HW, p.144)
