From ADM 199/642

HMS Quilliam (Capt. S.H. Carlill, DSO RN) and HMS Loyal (Lt.Cdr. H.E.F. Tweedie, DSC, RN) patrolled the Italian coast between 4250'N and 4350'N.

At 2130 hours, in position 4256'N, 1356'E they sighted an F lighter and a tug with a lighter in tow. The F lighter was sunk, the lighter that was towed by the tug was damaged and possibly sunk. The tug was hit three times. Shore batteries caused the destroyers to withdraw. HMS Loyal sustained damage to her paint shop. On board HMS Quilliam Paymaster Lieutenant R.H. Sharps, RN was killed.

The F lighter claimed sunk was F 483, she did not sink but was driven aground to prevent her doing so. She was later destroyer as it was not possible to salvage her.

Kind regards,
Brian Corijn crew
