Events

14-10-1941 : Laid Down
04-02-1943 : Launched
23-04-1943 : Completed
22-03-1944 : HMS Syrtis sank Norwegian SS Narvik near Sleipnesodden, Helgeland with gunfire
28-03-1944 : Mined & sunk

HMS Syrtis left Lerwick on 16th March 1944 for a patrol off the Norwegian coast. On 20th March she was ordered to an area near Bodo, some 70 miles inside the Arctic Circle. Two days later she sank the steamer Narvik with gunfire. On the 28th a signal was sent to Syrtis ordering her to return to Lerwick. This signal was never acknowledged and the submarine failed to return. German reports indicate the sinking of a submarine in the Bodo area at the time by shore batteries, but the most likely cause of her loss is a mine.
