9 Jul 1940
HMS H 43 (Lt. G.R. Colvin, RN) ended her 5th war patrol at Plymouth.
She departed later the same day for her 6th war patrol. She was to conduct a special operation (the second part of Operation Angler). Two reconnaissance agents were to be landed on Guernsey and the agent landed on the 8th had to be taken off. HMS H 43 was escorted out until 2230 hours by HMS Indian Star.
