SS SEALION involved in skirmish with Soviets 1963

Still reading this book and came across a mention that the Soviets had forced Sealion to the surface --hushed up at the time, 1963 . The TNA has an archive on the incident that mentions Onslaught.
Too far away for me to look !

Sound very much like the incident where the USS GUDGEON in about 1957 ,got caught by Soviet vessels and she ran out of battery and had to surface rather ignominiously and slide away .All in the book BLIND MANS BLUFF .

No damage reported -- I suppose the Soviets used practice grenades as they did on us in the Baltic 1952.
Anybody know anything about the Sealion incident ?
Thanks Lofty
