Notable events involving Cayton Wyke include:
25 Oct 1939
German U-boat U-16 was scuttled in the English Channel near Dover, in position 51°09'N, 01°28'E, after hitting a mine. Its loss was earlier credited to depth charge attacks carried out by the British ASW trawler HMS Cayton Wyke (Ch/Skr. D.F. Noble, RNR) and the patrol vessel HMS Puffin (Lt.Cdr. Hon. J.M.G. Waldegrave, RN) in the afternoon on 24 October, but the U-boat was probably not damaged during these attacks.
