HMS Stronsay was positively lost to a mine laid by the German 3. S-boote Flottille (OL Friedrich Kemnade). The vented possibility that Italian submarine Avorio could have torpedoed her, is negated by archival research which reveals Avorio did not arrive in the area until at least 24 hrs after Stronsay had sunk and did not carry out any torpedo attacks.
Our thanks go to Mr. Francesco Mattesini for the detailed archival research on the matter.
