Flutto, July 1943

Hello

Can anyone give some details about the sinking of Italian submarine Flutto, lost (with the whole crew) at her first mission on July,11th, 1943 ?
AFAIK, Flutto was torpedoed after a "running fight" with RN MTBs 640, 651 and 670, 25 nm offshore between Catania and Acireale (Battle of Sicily).
According to "History of United States Naval Operations in World War II", by S.E. Morison, vol. IX, page 41,there were losses also on allied side (17 KIA/WIA): any MTB was damaged ?

Thanks in advance

Fabrizio
