Like the subchaser and the submarine, the seaplane operated most successfully in coastal waters.
At least this proved to be the case with our subchaser forces.
Meanwhile, our subchaser detachment at Corfu was performing excellent service.
On the morning of September 2nd one of these subchaser units picked up a suspicious sound.
Two subchaser units, six boats, were assigned as a screen to the Italian cruisers while the bombardment was under way.
