P32

Built By: Vickers (Barrow)
Build Group: U Group 2
Fate: Submarine P32 was on patrol off Tripoli on 18th August 1942 when a convoy of five ships was sighted. The Commanding Officer attempted to dive under a minefield to give himself a better chance of attacking but the Submarine hit a mine that exploded, sending Submarine P32 to the bottom.

Eight men in the fore-ends were killed by the collision and twenty-two survived the bottoming. Three of the crew including the Captain made an escape from the Conning Tower whilst the remainder attempted an escape from the Engine Room.

Only two of the Crew made a successful escape. Lt Abdy and CPO Kirk survived as POWs.
