|Notes on loss|
At 03.17 hours on 11 Mar, 1940, the Eulota (Master B. Elzinga) was hit by a torpedo from U-28 about 120 miles west of Quessant. The torpedo, fired from about 1000 meters, struck amidships, broke her in two and set her on fire. The crew abandoned ship, but returned later that morning. An Allied aircraft sighted the burning tanker in the afternoon and directed the HMS Broke (D 83) and the HMS Wild Swan (D 62) to the ship. They picked up the survivors and scuttled the still floating bow section.
