MS Trawler HMS Tervani (4.110)

7 Feb 1943
Tervani was assigned to patrol and minesweeping duties in the North African theatre. In the late evening of 7 February, she was towing the French water tanker Moy Mazout under escort of the RN trawlers Achroite and Arnold Bennett when she was torpedoed off Cap Bougaroun (Algeria) by the Platino (Lt. Vittorio Patrelli-Campagnano).
Tervani sank quickly, leaving only 2 survivors. The initial belief this sinking was the work of submarine Acciaio has been superseded by the archival research indicating Acciaio's target was the fast minelayer Abdiel, which reported being missed by 2 torpedoes at 2330 hrs in 37°28'N, 06°20'E.
