Looking through Hezlet I found that the Sunfish (Lt. G.R. Colvin) made three attacks on this patrol firing a toal of twelve torpedoes.
5.12 sank the Finnish steamer Oscar Midling
6.12 attacked and missed a small merchant vessel
7.12 attacked and damaged the Norwegian tanker Dixie
Does anyone know what her target on 6.12 might have been. According to Hezlet the small merchant vessel avoided the four torpedoes by changing her course sharply (implying that crew on the vessel sighted the torpedoes and took evasive action).
