My Father was a royal navy d.e.m.s gunner on the Triglav when she was sunk.He told me that when the ship went down he managed to get in 1 lifeboat and another d.e.m.s gunner was in the other.Although the boats were tied togather they broke apart during the night and the other boat was never seen again. 5 or 6 days later he could,nt quiet remember they were picked up by a Spanish fishing trawler on its way home, this in turn was stopped by a British gunboat out of Gibralter and the survivors were taken off,my Dad was back in the war. One other thing he rememberd was the Captain of the u.boat which surfaced after the ship sunk was wearing a big south American sombrero hat,after some questions he had some cigaretes and water passed over to the survivers. I hope this has been of some help.
