O/S File:
Data:
856 tons. 60.18m x 6.45m. Built in 1936 by Cantieri Riuniti Dell Adriatico CRDA, Trieste and Monfalcone. Crew of 44. The ADUA was built by the Monfalcone shipyard (near Gorizia) in 1936: laid down on February 1st, launched September 13th and delivered November 14th. At the end of 1939 the boat was assigned to the 71st Squadron of the VII Submarine Group based in Cagliari, Sardinia. In mid-September 1941, the boat completed a patrol off Minorca and then on the 16th reached Cagliari. On the 29th, it left base to move to a patrol area off Cape Palos, north of Cartagena (Spain) where a large convoy was expected to be crossing. At 3:50 on the 30th, the ADUA sighted a large group of 11 destroyers and, with great courage, went on the attack with a salvo of 4 torpedoes. The crew heard detonations and disengaged to avoid the reaction of the destroyers. At 05:25 the boat sent a signal (it was later revealed that it was the convoy named "Halbert", transferring from Gibraltar to Malta); thereafter, all contact with the boat were lost. After the war, British documentation revealed that a submarine (probably picked up by the radio finder when it sent the signal and was later pin pointed with ASDIC) was sunk by two of the eleven destroyers, the GURKA and LEGION, at around 10:30 AM on September 30th, 1941 in position N:37.10. E:00.56. (another source gives the position a bit more to the south in position N:36.50.). There were no survivors. .......................................................
