On 3 October 1918, HMS L10 (Lt Cdr A E Whitehouse) encountered German Torpedo Boats S34, V28 and S33 of 18th TB Half Flotilla which were engaged in escorting torpedo boats and U-boats from Flanders through British minefields, when S34 struck a mine and sank. S33 attempted to rescue the survivors. While doing so S33 was torpedoed by L10 but not sunk. Sometime later, possibly on 3 October, L10 surfaced close to the position of the attack and was engaged by S33 again and was eventually sunk by gunfire. L10 was lost with All Hands.
