The Italian corvette Procellaria (673 tons) was sunk on mines west of Sicily on a mine laid by HMS Welshman (Capt. W.H.D. Friedberger, DSO, RN).

The Italian torpedo boat Generale Marcello Prestinari (832 tons) sailed from Bizerte at 1500 hrs with orders to assist the mined corvette Procellaria, but was mined herself at 1630 hrs, 18 nautical miles bearing 137° from Ile de Cani also on a field laid the previous day by HMS Welshman, she went down in about one hour.

Ironically, HMS Welshman was lost on her way back from laying this field.
