    "On 19 February Convoy FS29 came under attack by E-boats from 2-s bootsflotille, but the combined fire power of the two destroyers protecting the convoy, assisted by two MGBs and two Mls, was enough to drive off the attackers.
    As the E-boats sped off, S39 and S53 collided at high speed. S39 was able to proceed, but S53 was partially flooded. The destroyer HMS Holderness approached with the intention of putting a boarding crew on the e-boat and seizing her. As the destroyer drew near, however S53s commander, Oberleutnant zur See, Peter Block, blew up his vessel to prevent her capture, sacrificing his own life in the process.

    My father only talked of this to his Great-grandsons. The ship was actually boarded. He was with the boarding party and Block in refined english advised them calmly to leave as ship was about to be explode. Ten officers and 19 ratings were taken on board (log at National Archives). HMS Holderness was damaged by explosion. By father described Block as bravest man he had known.
