On 22nd April, shifted to area between 38°00'N and 38°40'N, and between 01°10'E and 01°40'E. Ordered to Grids 8137 and 0137 (between 37°20'N and 38°00'N, and between 02°00'E and 02°20'E). Patrolled off east of Cape de Gata and south of Formentara (Spain).
  20 Apr 19420035At 0035 hours, a large dark shadow was sighted at 7-8,000 metres, but it was fast moving away and no attack was possible.

At 0440 hours, a lone destroyer was sighted on an easterly course at 18-20 knots. Ten minutes later, two torpedoes were fired at a range of 1,000 metres but missed. This was HMS Antelope on her way to rejoin Force H after refuelling at Gibraltar (during operation CALENDAR: USS Wasp flying off 47 Spitfires to Malta). One torpedo track was sighted by the destroyer and she tried to locate the submarine but could not obtain a contact.
  27 Apr 19420205At 0205 hours, Velella sighted a submarine steering 075° and made an enemy report at 0317 hours. Emo attempted to intercept it but could not make contact. MARICOSOM had informed submarines that a British submarine of the TRITON class had sailed from Gibraltar at 1830 hours on 22nd April [this was HMS Taku], followed by an 'O' class submarine at 2130 hours on the 25th [HMS Osiris]. The submarine seen was probably the latter.

  27 Jun 1942051437° 24'N, 9° 20'EA third torpedo was fired at the same tanker from a bow tube, due to an error in drill. The tanker was later seen flying French colours. It was believed to have been Noroit (453 GRT, built 1935).

4.Velella (VL, I.27)16 Jul 19420235Cagliari20 Jul 19420930Cagliari456Patrolled east of La Galite, between 37°20'N and 37°40'N, and between 09°20'E and 09°40'E on a line with Bronzo, Malachite and Dagabur. Uneventful.

6.Dandolo ( DO, I.16)11 Aug 19421730Cagliari14 Aug 19420947Cagliari554,5Patrolled north of Tunisia with Emo and Otaria on a patrol line between 37°20'N and 38°00'N, and between 09°20'E and 09°40'E.
  12 Aug 1942180037° 39'N, 9° 45'EAt 1800 hours, an enemy naval squadron consisting of two battleships, an aircraft carrier, a cruiser and five destroyers was sighted at a distance of 9-10,000 metres, on a 090° course. Dandolo got as close as 7,000 meters before being attacked at 1830 hours by a destroyer which dropped four depth-charges causing some damage, notably to the periscope. The submarine escaped by going down to 120 meters. Some 120 depth-charges were heard until 2120 hours.
  13 Aug 19421530As Dandolo was returning to base following the damage incurred the previous day, she was informed at 1530 hours of a damaged aircraft carrier (believed to be HMS Furious). She reverted course in the hope of intercepting it but, at 1645 hours, a new signal came cancelling the previous report and the submarine returned to base.

At 1330 hours, an aircraft, identified as a Saro London bomber, came from the sun and attacked Velella as she was preparing to dive. The aircraft strafed the submarine and dropped six bombs which missed her by 300 to 400 metres. This was in fact Hudson 'G' (FH398) of 233 Squadron piloted by Flying Officer W.E. Willits. It had sighted the submarine at a distance of 20 miles and dived from 3,500 feet. Only four depth charges were dropped and estimated to miss the submarine by 70 yards. Velella managed to dive and escape.
