(0) 18 miles west of Eupatoria.
At 0114 hours, a Soviet submarine was sighted and attacked with two torpedoes (450mm) fired at a range of 400 metres. One hit under the conning tower and the submarine sank.

This was the Soviet submarine SC-203 (Captain 3rd rank Vladimir Innokentyevich Nemchinov). There were no survivors and forty-five victims.

Her wreck was found in 1949. She was probably the submarine which attacked CB 1 on 23 August 1943, as tubes 1 and 4 were found empty.
