|It was 11:00 am when Capt. Gueno noticed a shell crashing some 30 meters off his ship. It was the first shot from a submarine who immediately ordered the ship to be evacuated. The 22 crew members pulled away in 2 boats and the submarine fired a dozen of shells in the hull at short range. The drifting french crew was found nearly two days later by a patrol boat 5 miles W of Head of Kinsale and landed at Queenstown.|
