It does not appear that she suffered casualties during the attack but it is possible that there were some as the German invasion of Crete during the following days created some havoc (to say it mildly). The Suda War Diaries do not mention casualties although they usually do. Another source (S°folke og skibe 1939-1945, vol.3 by Christian Tortzen) does not mention casualties but reports that fifteen men were evacuated to Alexandria, 21 were missing, either killed or made PoWs when the Germans conquered Crete.
All the best,
