In August 1942 the Italian submarine Scirè was intercepted on a raiding mission to the oil port of Haifa and sunk by depth charges and gunfire with all men aboard. Human torpedoes had been launched from the Scirè during previous missions, most notably in the port of Alexandria in December 1941. Her combat divers successfully attacked twenty-eight Allied ships during World War II. Submarine Scirè received the Gold Medal for Military Valour, one of only three Italian vessels. In 1984 the remains of almost all of the crew and divers were recovered and repatriated.
