  • Notes 
    • (Medical):HMS Olympus struck a mine in the early hours of 8 May, 1942 shortly after she left Malta Harbour under the cover of darkness. Nearly 90 men perished in what was one of the worst naval disasters of the war. Only nine of the vessel's 98 crew members survived after swimming seven miles back to shore in cold water.(The exact spot where the 283ft-long submarine sank in the Mediterranean Sea remained a mystery for 70 years.But now a marine archaeology survey team has confirmed that they last year(2011) discovered the Olympus' resting place using side-scan sonar to survey the seabed.)
