Events related to this officer
20 Mar 1941 (position 20.02, -25.50)
At 23.23 hours on 20 March 1941, German U-boat U-106 attacked the shadow of a merchant ship with a spread of two stern torpedoes in bad light from the port side of the convoy SL-68 about 250 miles west-northwest of the Cape Verde Islands in position 20°02'N, 25°50'W. One torpedo hit and damaged the British battleship HMS Malaya (Capt. A.F.E. Palliser, DSC, RN) which was hit on the port side, causing considerable damage. Due to the flooding of some rooms the ship took a list of 7 degrees, but safely reached Trinidad. After temporary repairs were made, she continued to the New York Navy Yard, where the battleship was docked for 4 months. On 9 July, the ship left for the Clyde, arriving on 28 July.
