11 June 1915; Friday

At work all day and working again at night. Two Torpedo Boats sunk by German Submarine in North Sea, No 10 & 121.

  1. Two torpedo boats, ex-Cricket-class coastal destroyers, sailed from Harwich at midnight on the 9th June, on patrol off Thames estuary, searching for reported submarines with three other TBs and five destroyers. Both were mined on 10 June; mines laid by UC.11 two days earlier. TB12 (ex-Moth) was mined first (thought to have been torpedoed at the time) . TB10 (ex-Greenfly) suffered the same fate while trying to take TB12 in tow. See Naval-History.net
