Just had a look at the sinking of Lowestoft link.
It looks like the torpedo struck starboard side of boiler room in way of the Weir sea water evaporator - to think of all the hours I put in assisting with the installation of same at the A. Stephen yard in 1961. I am sure the Weir Harbour Feed Pump and FFO pumps were still standing to attention as she slipped beneath the waves.
