    The “N51”, (pilot Christos Spentzos, observer Dimitris Diamantopoulos, r/t operator Panagiotis Makris) hit an Italian submarine in March 18th 1941. The Italian submarine was sunk soon afterwards, by other greek airplanes and one greek destroyer.
    The “N59” during patrol, attacked with its two machine guns and chased 3 Italian bombers. All the three of them got rid of their bombs over the sea, and turned back.
