Richard Bebb in The Mystery of X-Craft 5
In September 1943 three midget submarines known as X-Craft 5, 6 and 7 made their way up a Norwegian fjord to attack the German battleship 7'irpitz. The commanders of X6 and X7 were awarded VCs at the end of the war. But what happened to X-Craft 5? Her commander, Lieutenant H. Henty-Creer , received only a mention in dispatches.
In 1974 divers recovered wreckage in the fjord which suggests that X5 also took a vital part in this gallant action.
