Submarine L10 was sunk (with all hands) on the morning of 3rd October 1918 by gunfire from the German Destroyer S33. Lieutenant Commander Whitehouse made a torpedo attack on the German Destroyer S33 as it was engaged in trying to rescue survivors of its sister ship, the Destroyer S34, which had run into a minefield. In making his attack on S33 Lieutenant Commander Whitehouse inadvertently allowed the submarine’s conning tower to broach the surface. This was sighted by S33, which then made its successful gun attack resulting in the loss of Submarine L10. L10’s attack on S33 was eventually successful as the destroyer was so badly damaged that she had to be sunk by other German forces.
