Greetings
There is a short piece in Archibald Hurds "The Merchant Navy" He is not exactly precise about dates, but the following may be helpful:
From “THE MERCHANT NAVY” By Archibald Hurd:
Two vessels which succeeded in coming safely into harbour after being badly damaged by torpedoes were the David Lloyd George (4764 tons) on the 17th, and the Thornhill (3848 tons) on the 27th.
The Marie Suzanne (3106 tons) had on the 19th fallen some distance astern of her convoy owing to her lack of speed, and was attacked in quick succession by two submarines. She forced both of them to submerge, firing ten rounds at the first and thirty at the second. The master Capt. P E George who afterwards received the D.S.C.,gave high praise to hs gunners for their coolness and good shooting, by which his ship was saved.

Good hunting
Phil
