Triad (N53)

Built By: Vickers (Barrow)
Build Group: T Group 1
Fate: On 15th October 1940, the Italian submarine Enrico Toto (C.C. Bandino Bandini) encountered HMS Traid south west of Calabria in position 38º16'N, 17º37'E.

The Submarines passed at close range on opposite courses as the Italian submarine engaged with machine-gun fire and three rounds of 4" from her deck gun, claiming two direct hits. HMS Triad fired back scoring a hit on the conning tower of Enrico Toti but this caused only slight damage and wounded two sailors. Triad’s torpedo missed the Italian submarine by a few yards.

Triad pulled away and dived but Enrico Toti had fired a torpedo which made a direct hit. Triad was lost with all hands.
