Zitat17 Nov 1942HMS P 211 (Cdr. B. Bryant, DSC, RN) fired a torpedo at a number of German barges anchored at Ras Ali. The barges F 358, F 360 and F 545 were present but none were hit. The exact time of the attack is not recorded in P 211's report, the German war diaries of Seetransportstelle Ras Aali gives the time as 0800 hours. The torpedo hit the mole and destroyed it on a length of 25 metres. Five were killed and about fifteen wounded. One German source mentions that the minesweeper R 15 was damaged on this day but although she was present, the diaries of Ras Aali do not confirm it.
