NIGHT ATTACK ON THE NEWCASTLE
by Robert Taylor
During the night of
14/15 June 1942 German E-boats of the 3rd Flotilla left their Eastern
Mediterranean base at Derna to intercept an Allied convoy bound for the
island of Malta. Just before 04.00, under the command of Leutnant Seigfried
Wuppermann, the motor torpedo boat S-56 slipped passed two Royal Navy
escort destroyers to make a stern attack on the British cruiser HMS Newcastle.
Signed in pencil by the artist Robert Taylor and five veterans who served with HMS Newcastle; Admiral of the Fleet Sir Henry Leach GCB DL, Lieutenant John Baber RNVR, Able Seaman Wilfred Marriott RN, Signalman Arthur Deakin RN, Chief Petty Officer Rupert Stant RN.
