15 ships sunk (51,295 tons) and 3 ships damaged (6,530 tons).

We have a picture of this vessel.
(d.) means the ship was damaged.
(t.) means the ship was a total loss (included in ships & tonnage lost).
[Trans.] indicates the vessel was lost while being transported on another vessel.

In some cases the exact positions of losses are not known, those are not shown.
In other cases the posititions are too close and the markers overlap, not much we can do about that.
