Hello again Fabrizio,
Actually, SETTEMBRINI reported the tanker abandoned and sinking slowly after the ramming and gunfire (the torpedoes all missed). I suspect that this was the lighter 'A' 10, she had been abandoned after an air attack while in company with lighter 'A' 11, the latter tried to tow her away but then gave up. Possibily these were the two vessels seen and attacked earlier. I am visiting the London Archives starting this Tuesday and will try to find out more.
