1st Submarine Squadron. Malta 1957.

HMS Forth was depot ship to the 1st SM Sdrn in Malta '57-'59. Can anyone tell me the names of the 4 "T" and 4 "S" boats that she looked after? Sanguin and Sentinel ring a bell, as do Totem and Token.

Semper Strenuissima
SMOTB, Talent, Tally Ho and Sea Devil sound familiar.

N-G, I am pretty sure that photo was taken in Grand Harbour. While I was on Forth she very rarely ventured out of Msida Creek.
