Hello Mark,

Both vessels were scuttled by the Italians on 8.12.1941. When HM Chariots TINY and SLASHER attacked on 28.10.1944 the SUMATRA MARU had recently been raised by the Japanese and was to be towed to Singapore for repairs. The VOLPI was still partly submerged but the Japanese were working to salvage her. SUMATRA MARU was sunk again and the ex-VOLPI severely damaged. Both chariots were later scuttled but the crews were recovered.

Best regards,
