    27th February 1942

    Sunk by Upholder whilst en-route Tripoli to Italy.
    Ultra tells us of the 468 Allied P.O.W. aboard 390 died. 68 Italians and 10 Germans were also lost.
    Survivors were picked up by Destroyer Strale and taken back to Tripoli.

    This was the second such loss of p.o.w. in the Mediterranean in 1942.
