Hi Jordi,

From ADM 199/650, and i quote

4 June 1942

' HMS Janus was damaged by a mine which exploded in her wake at 1724/4 in position 3115.5'N, 2944'E (off Alexandria). It was hoped to repair her in about three weeks. '

In fact she only was back in operation in early to mid October 1942. She returned to the U.K. (via the Cape route) for a full refit shortly afterwards.

No casualties as far as i know.

Kind regards,
Brian Corijn crew
