Lettens Jan28/05/2012The Italian submarine TRITONE was lost during her first mission, 19 January 1943, when, under the command of Lieutenant Commander Paul Monechi, she tried to attack an enemy convoy.

During the attack, she was spotted and depth charged by British destroyer HMS ANTELOPE and Canadian corvette PORT ARTHUR. She surfaced to avoid sinking and was shelled.

TRITONE sank shortly after, taking 26 men with her (3 officers, 22 petty officers and sailors and one civilian worker). 25 survivors were rescued and taken prisoner by the British.

About Builders
 Cantieri Riuniti Dell´ Adriatico CRDA, Trieste & Monfalcone
Cantieri Riuniti dell' Adriatico was founded in 1930 from the merger between Stabilimento Tecnico Triestino (Trieste) and Cantiere Navale Triestino (Monfalcone). CRDA built cruisers, submarines and battleships for the Italian Navy. After the wars it remained in business and focused partly on building cruise liners. Nowadays (2010) the yard is still in operation but is owned since 1984 by Fincantieri Group.
