HMS Tarpon

Platon Alexiades

Recommended Posts

There is a fascinating documentary from Danish TV on the wreck of the submarine HMS Tarpon recently found west of Thyboron. It is long (118 minutes) and naturally in Danish with very brief passages in English but those patient enough to see it through may find it rewarding.


HMS Tarpon was sunk by the German Q-ship Schiff 40 on 10 April 1940, I believe the only instance when a Q-ship sank a submarine in WW2.
