HMS Unseen (P51)

HMS Unseen (P51)

HMS "Unseen" (P51) was a Royal Navy U-class submarine built by Vickers-Armstrong at Barrow-in-Furness.


"Unseen" spent most of her eventful wartime career in the Mediterranean, where she sank the Italian merchants "Zenobia Martini", "Le Tre Marie" and "Rastello" (the former Greek "Messaryas Nomikos"), the Italian naval auxiliary "Sportivo", the German auxiliary submarine chaser "UJ-2205" (the former French "Le Jacques Coeur"), the Italian sailing vessel "Fabiola", the German minelayer "Brandenburg" (the former French "Kita"), the German nightfighter direction vessel "Kreta" (the former French "Ile de Beauté") and the German barge "F 541". "Unseen" also destroyed the wreck of the German merchant "Macedonia" and a salvage barge.

"Unseen" also launched unsuccessful attacks against the Italian merchant "Saluzzo" (the former French "Tamara"), and what is identified as an Italian Capitani Romani class cruiser.

"Unseen" survived the war and was scrapped at Hayle in September 1949.
