Hello,

Admiral Scheer mentions in his memoirs a fight between U 84 and a Q-ship that took place on 22 February 1917. U 84 was badly damaged and lucky to survive. An escort ship also joined the action later, of a type Germans called "Foxglove".

Is it known which Q-ship was this? And the escort? Scheer mentions a few hits registered on the latter. Is that true?
