Damage to HMCS Magog
These photographs help show the extent of the damage U-1223's torpedo inflicted on the frigate HMCS Magog.
The explosion of the torpedo's warhead destroyed over 18 metres of Magog's stern, leaving the ship badly damaged and without propulsion. After being towed to Quebec City for inspection, the severity of Magog's damage led to its being written off as a total loss.
