At 0240 hours, H.2 reported sighting a torpedo track which missed her a few metres ahead. No Allied submarine operated in area at the time, so the "torpedo" was probably a porpoise .

Note: Topazio reported receiving the signal on 9th March, which means that the transfer dates of Topazio or H.2 may be incorrect.

  17 Nov 1942040040° 25'N, 14° 03'EAt 0400 hours, an enemy submarine was sighted at a distance of 2,500-3,000 metres. H.2 had readied tubes no. 1 and 3, but the enemy got further away and H.2 could not close the distance.

This was almost certainly HMS Turbulent (Cdr. J.W. Linton, DSO, RN) who did not notice the Italian submarine.
