H.M. Sloop "Slanto"?

The image above is of part of the paperwork released by the Australian War Dept. during WW11 after my grandfather was listed missing. In the end he was declared dead.
The action was either off Nth Africa or Greece - I'm not sure which. The problem is that I can find no trace of any ship anywhere called "Slanto", let alone a sloop. Did the war office get it's info wrong, or is the boat name misspelled or maybe even mistranslated - I have tried quite a few alternatives!
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated - this has been bugging me for a few years now.
