HMS Seaham

Shown here is the Bangor (VTE-engined) class minesweeper HMS Seaham with the Italian Acciaio class seagoing submarine Bronzo alongside off Syracuse on 12th July, 1943. The Bronzo, unaware of the fall of the fortresses of Augusta and Syracuse surfaced near Allied naval units, thinking them to be Italian. After being subjected to intense fire, she was boarded, captured and subsequently ceded to the Frech Navy, in which she served as Narval until 1946. Taken from Submarines of World War Two.
