(All times are zone -2)
1316 hours - In position 39°05'N, 17°28'E sighted a small destroyer closing and using some sort of A/S transmissions. P 31 remained at periscope depth and took avoiding action. The destroyers tactics were to stop and presumably listen and then to go ahead using her asdics.

1330 hours - The destroyer attacked and forced P 31 deep. 12 Depth charges were dropped at intervals up to 1400 hours.

1648 hours - Observed that the enemy had altered course. P 31 was now 25° on the enemy's port bow. The destroyers appeared to be zigging independently and were rushing about at high speed. The large ships were thought to be battleships (after consultation upon returing to Malta they were thought to be cruisers).

1652 hours - A destroyer was now right ahead at a range of 900 yards. Went to 50 feet. The destroyer then passed overhead.

1654 hours - Returned to periscope depth. The enemy had altered course again. Altered course to complete the attack.

1658 hours - In position 39°05'N, 17°31'E fired four torpedoes from 1000 yards against one of the big ships. Took avoiding action on firing and went deep.

(All times are zone -2)
1431 hours - In position 33°07'N, 12°03'E sighted a laden merchant vessel of about 1500 tons. Range was about 5 nautical miles. No surface escort was present but there was an air escort. Enemy (mean) course was 090° but she was zig-zagging. Closed at high speed.

1459 hours - Fired 3 torpedoes from 5000 yards. No explosions were heard.

1508 hours - Observed that the ship had altered course and was now heading towards the coast. The aircraft prevented further observations or gun action. As the sea was oily calm the torpedo tracks were most likely sighted.

(All times are zone -2)
1245 hours - In position 35°27'N, 12°12'E sighted an aircraft carrying out an A/S sweep. Went deep.

1305 hours - Heard H.E., bearing 340° and came to periscope depth.

1306 hours - Sighted a motor vessel escorted by two Folgore-class destroyers, one on either bow. Range was 7200 yards. The nearest destoyer had FL on her bow. [Here Lt. Kershaw must have made a mistake, destroyer Fulmine (FL) had been sunk on 9 November 1941.]

1310 hours - Commenced a retiring turn. The target was on a steady course with the destroyers zigging independently. The target was a vessel of about 7000 tons and fully laden.

1320 hours - Decided to attack with a salvo of four torpedoes. It was a large vessel, fully laden with a heavy escort. It must be a very valuable ship for the enemy.

1321 hours - Went to 40 feet as the sea was flat calm and the periscope would otherwise be sighted. Decided to attack using Asdic.

1323 hours - Fired four torpedoes from 780 yards. All hit. H.E. of the target ceased. P 31 increased to full speed and retired to the North.

1327 hours - Went to slow speed.

1329 hours - 5 Depth charges were dropped, fairly close.

It was some comfort that the chart 'from the latest Italian Government Surveys' gave the greatest depth as 180 feet.

1600 hours - The final depth charges were dropped and the destroyers were heard proceeding to the North.

1700 hours - Returned to periscope depth. Nothing in sight. Went deep again to reload.
