I have to confess the title is a bit deceptive. When I refer to Shakespeare I am not talking about the famous bard William Shakespeare but rather HMS Shakespeare, an S-class submarine built for the Royal Navy during WWII.
During her service in the Mediterranean, she sank the Italian sailing vessels Sant’ Anna M. and Adelina. On September 7,1943 she sank the Italian submarine Velella off the coast near Salerno.There were no survivors.
Later on during the war HMS Shakespeare was transferred to to the Far East, she sank the Japanese merchant cargo ship Unryu Maru.
