Perhaps we need to look at this old thread again:
ADMIRALTY WAR DIARIES of WORLD WAR 2
MEDITERRANEAN FLEET - April to June 1942
Convoy AT 49 was attacked by one or possibly two U boats during the night of 9th/10th. The cased petrol ship HAVRE was torpedoed and sank at 0330/10th in position 31-10N, 28-36E. BRAMBLELEAF and ATHENE were both torpedoed at 0600/10th in position 31-12N, 28-10E. ATHENE caught fire, had to be abandoned and finally sank two days later. BRAMBLELEAF was got in tow of tugs from Alexandria and Mersa Matruh and finally arrived at Alexandria a.m. 11th, escorted by PEONY and two M.L.s. She was drawing 45 feet and unable to enter harbour until salvage had been carried out."
I believe that the recently released book 'U-boat Attack Logs' account of this attack is more or less the same as the one given above.
