TURBOLENT: 1,090 tons (losses 14 March 1943)

Went out from Algiers February 24 1943 for a mission to develop in the Tyrrhenian Sea, first to north of Messina and subsequently in a zone of access to the port of Naples. 1° March, finding itself in the neighborhoods of Paola (Calabria), sank the Italian steamboat “San Vincenzo”, directed by Naples to Milazzo. Subsequently, from the Order of 8^ Flotilla submarines, l' order of to bring operate itself long the coasts eastern of the Corsica, and then of to carry out a raid until all' height of the southeastern coasts of the Sardinia. March 18 the “Turbulent” (captain of corvette J. W. Linton) would have had to signal its arrival in the zone, but quest' long-awaited communication was not transmitted from the submarine. Called l' next day from the base, done not answer. Aside Italian they are not yourselves a lot of elements to affirm with sufficient safety the causes of the loss of the “Turbulent”. It was retained that it was been at least damaged the morning of March 12 from a means antisom (the motorsailer “Teti 2”, gone out from Suffices to research a submarine that in the afternoon of the day before had attached along the port, with throw of two torpedoes, the steamboat “Princess Mafalda”; but such supposition to fall when l' British Admiralty communicated all' Historical Office of the Navy French “Casabianca”. Aside British it is retained that the “Turbulent” is been sunk from a mine outside the Maddalena, likely March 14. For its considerable activity of war, to the commanding Linton was granted, posthumous, the Victoria Cros.
