HMS Tally Ho, captained by Commander L.W.A. Bennington was a T-class submarine which achieved spectacular success in the Second World War. Her name was chosen for her by Winston Churchill and it proved a very suitable one for a hunting submarine. In a single commission, lasting from 15th March 1943 to 26th February 1945, she operated in the Malacca Strait. Here, surrounded by enemy air bases and in badly charted shallow waters - so shallow that many experts considered them unsuitable for submarine operations - she took a heavy toll of enemy warships and supply vessels. The boat, her captain and her crew are all vividly portrayed in this exciting chronicle which is the fruit of wide and detailed research.
An account of the wartime operations of the submarine HMS Tally-Ho and her crew in the Malacca Strait off Malaya, who successfully attacked and destroyed many enemy ships despite operating in shallow and uncharted waters considered unsuitable for submarines.
