(6)

HMS Upright (Lt. R.S. Brookes, DSC, RN) tried to attack a convoy about 50 nautical miles South-East of the Kerkennah shallows. Due to an mistake in the setup of the attack it had to be broken off. Later one torpedo was fired from great range but it missed.

According to Italian sources this was probably the convoy consisting of Tilly M. Russ (1600 GRT, built 1926), Brook (1225 GRT, built 1927), Bainsizza (7933 GRT, built 1930), San Andre (?) and tug Max Behrendt escorted by the torpedo boats Generale Carlo Montanari, Clio, Centauro and Polluce and the armed merchant cruiser Ramb III, they were on passage Trapani to Tripoli.

(All times are zone -2)
1623 hours - In position 33°59'N, 12°01'E sighted smoke bearing 260°. Altered course to investigate.

1638 hours - Sighted a convoy of five merchant ships, three of about 4000 tons and two smaller ones of about 2000 tons. They were escorted by two destroyers and two aircraft. Started attack.

1652 hours - Due to a faulty attack setup by Uprights inexperienced Commanding Officer she ended up 300 yards in front of one of the escorts when she was to fire torpedoes the attack had to be broken off and Upright was taken deep.

1728 hours - Returned to periscope depth. Saw one of the merchant vessels a bit behind the remainder of the convoy. Decided to attack despite the rather great range.

1743 hours - Fired one torpedo from 6000 yards at the last ship of the Port column. It missed. (6)

(8)

28 Dec 1941
On surfacing after dark, HMS Osiris (Lt. R.S. Brookes, DSC, RN) had an electrical malfuncion which resulted in her navigation lights buring brilliantly. The enemy must have noticed this as A/S forces began a hunt in the area. Osiris therefore shifted her patrol area to Candia. (8)

30 Dec 1941
Late in the morning, HMS Osiris (Lt. R.S. Brookes, DSC, RN), was depth charged by what is thought to be an enemy destroyer / torpedo boat off Suda Bay. Lt. Brookes thought Osiris might have been detected by loops near Suda Bay. (8)

4 Jan 1942
At 0650 hours, Lt. R.S. Brookes, DSC, RN decided to abandon the patrol due to the many serious defects. HMS Osiris then set course towards Alexandria. (9)

HMS Osiris (Lt. R.S. Brookes, DSC, RN) ended her 10th war patrol at Alexandria. Again she needed major repairs which would take a long time.

Shortly before arriving at Alexandria the sole means of propulsion left to HMS Osiris also had a major malfuntion. Osiris was now towed into the harbour. (9)
