    On December 3rd 1940, the Italian submarine PIETRO CALVI departed Bordeaux lurking off the coast of Ireland. On December 20th, after a violent clash, she sank the British armed steamer SS CARLTON (5162 grt.) from convoy OB-260.

    CARLTON, shelling the submarine, tried to ram the PIETRO CALVI, but failed and was finally torpedoed.

    The entire crew of 35 men abandoned the ship in two lifeboats, but one capsized. The remaining lifeboat was found, 18 days later, with only 4 survivors.
