Hi,
The probably date of the loss is 10.2.43. She was lost with 42 men, including 7 Norwegian commandoes and 3 British crew members. Some of her crew had been left behind to make space for the commandoes. The minefield was laid by minelayer "Cobra".
The wreck was located 05.11.1985 by Norwegian minesweeper HNoMS Tana, and made an ofisial war grave 13.3.1986. The wreck is in good shape, but with major damages in the aft part due to the explosion.
The loss was not recognised by the Germans.
regards Erling
