Phoenix (N96)

1927 - 1946: Parthian Class

Phoenix sailed on patrol in the Central Mediterranean from Alexandria on 3rd July 1940. A long-range attack was made on two Italian Battle Ships and four destroyer escorts and one hit was claimed. Phoenix continued on to the patrol area off Sicily where a minefield was to be laid. The Submarine was ‘lost with all hands’ on 10th July 1940, probably after a depth charge attack by the Italian Torpedo Boat Albatros off the San Croce Lighthouse at Augusta in Sicily.

Commonwealth War Graves Commission

A Tribute To Submariners

I have often looked for an opportunity of paying tribute to our submariners.

There is no branch of His Majesty's Forces which in this war has suffered the same proportion of total loss as our submarine service.

It is the most dangerous of all services.

That is perhaps the reason why the First Lord tells me that the entry into it is keenly sought by Officers and Men.

I feel sure the House would wish to testify its gratitude and admiration to our Submariners for their Skill - Courage and Devotion which has proved of inestimable value to the sustenance of our country.

Winston Churchill
