Hi Brian,

I will check your data but I was thinking of instances when a torpedo nearly sank the submarine. It seems that they were not that many. I will grant you that gyro failures were more frequent.

If a premature explosion occurred during the first firing, then it is clear that it did not prevent the submarine from firing a second time but perhaps some damage occurred which were later fatal. It is surprising that HMS UNIQUE did not make an enemy report which I think would have been important so it is quite possible that her loss occurred shortly after.

All the best,

Platon

P.S. at work already?
