08:36 The gun crews from the Pargust commenced firing on the submarine, blowing holes in the conning tower. The submarine attempted to flee on the surface but slowed down and heeled over, trailing oil. When the gun crews stopped firing the sub tried a last escape, but the final barrage caused a large explosion which blew the vessel in two, killing Captain Ernst Rosenow and 22 crew members (2 others were rescued by the panic party)
Pargust badly damaged, taken in tow by HMS Crocus.
