I found this story in the Naval Chronicle at Plymouth Naval library on my second attempt..

That library has been closed by Plymouth Council, a loss to Plymouth’s culture and heritage, it was a very fine collection with a first class curator.

The first story I found was perfect, even a ballad written, until I checked the times.

It was a night action!
