  • British submarine HMS Tactician under Lieutenant Commander A. F. Collett, DSC, RN fired six torpedoes against the Italian submarine Luigi Settembrini that had traveled from Pola and was about to enter Brindisi harbour in southern Italy. No hits were obtained, but the Italians observed two torpedo tracks astern, one at about 200 meters and another just only 15 meters. Later on, she set course to return to the Gulf of Taranto.
