Hello Jan-Olof,

PATHAN was sunk by an accidental explosion. Although an internal explosion was dismissed at the time there was no good reason given for that, probably it looked better when a ship was lost through enemy action. GALVANI was not in the area at the time (and could not have been as you noted).

Best regards,

Platon
