The sub is HMS Taku of the first group T class built by Cammell Laird, launch 20 May 1939 and would have an active war in Home and Med waters, surviving all that was dropped on her to be broken up Llanelly Nov 1946.

X.131 was sunk at Malta as was sister X.127 whose remains can still be dived in Marsamxett harbour, Malta.
Thats all folks. Sean.
