Re: SGBs in combat.

Hello.
On the forums I read that SGBs sank 6 enemy ships. But I found only four - "TOURQUISE" and R-41 18.06.1942, V 1501 27.09.1943 and V 241 09.08.1944. What were the other ships sunk? Or they were not?

Actions SGBs 1942-1945

1. Night 9/10 July 1942 SGB-4 and -8 conducted battle against R-boats. How is it that SGB-4 was rammed one of them for a long time was under repair?
2. The night of 26 July 4 SGBs attacked two German patrol trawler. Why SGB-3 withdrawn in tow?

Re: MTB 262

P. Smith wrote that night, September 14, 1942 MTB 262 together with the MTB 260, 261 and 316 were trying to get through the boom in Tobruk and while three of them fired at targets in the harbour torpedo. But what kind of boat, and when the time — it is not written. What is known about this episode?

Re: MTB 309

Until that time, I believed that the landing east of Tobruk morning 14.09. 1942 managed to land only MTB-261 and -314 (LC Reynolds and HF Cooper, "Mediterranean MTBs At War", Sutton, 2001.). But the break P.Smith "Massacre at Tobruk" writes that it was the MTB-260 and -314, and the crew sat down on ...

MGB 17

Help determine the cause of death of the MGB-17. Some sources say that he was killed by a mine 11/06/1944, others, such as Rover, argue that it was sunk by artillery E-boat S-171. Where did it happen?

Re: MTB 30

Thank you. According to Santos unclear. According to all reports and links, which I quoted and others, Santos has been damaged is November 30th. The Germans have no evidence that on December 7 was attacked and hit by a ship either.
