15-04-1940 : HMS Sterlet torpedoes and sinks the German gunnery training ship Brummer in the Skagerrak south of Larvik, Norway
18-04-1940 : HMS Sterlet was sunk

On 8th April 1940 HMS Sterlet left for a patrol in the Skagerrak, Norway. Four days later she signaled that she had unsuccessfully attacked a Convoy of 3 Merchant ships and a Destroyer. The following day she was assigned a new patrol area and on the 18th torpedoed the German Gunnery Ship Brummer, causing serious damage. At once the German escorts counter attacked with repeated depth charge attacks. Their target never resurfaced.
