Folks,

Can someone assist, NEWTON PINE 2200 GMT 13 December 1940, position 8 16N 15 25W, reported an attack, first a torpedo exploded astern, submarine then surfaced and a 30 minute gun engagement took place between the ship and submarine. The submarine later dived after the ship reported a possible hit on the submarine.

Looking at patrols the nearest U-boat was U-65 but its too far south, suspect this was an Italian boat, can anyone provide further confirm on the identity of the submarine?

Regards,

Mark
