4 ships sunk (23,048 tons) and 1 ship damaged (7,176 tons).

We have a picture of this vessel.
(d.) means the ship was damaged.

In some cases the exact positions of losses are not known, those are not shown.
In other cases the posititions are too close and the markers overlap, not much we can do about that.
