|Ondina (ON)||8 Jun 1940||1238||Brindisi||8 Jun 1940||1604||Brindisi||Exercises (16.7 miles).|
|1.||Ondina (ON)||27 Jun 1940||0900||Brindisi||5 Jul 1940||0705||Augusta||865,5||Sailed for patrol in 34°16'N, 23°24'E as part of patrol line with Anfitrite, Salpa and Uebi Scebeli from a point 15 miles southwest of Gaudo to a point 40 miles northeast of Derna.|
|28 Jun 1940||1412|
|At 1135 hours, a tall column of water was observed at 10,000 metres. An aircraft then was sighted in the same direction (this was probably the first attack on Anfitrite). Ondina dived to a depth of 40 metres.|
From 1230 to 1250 hours, six distant explosions were heard.
At 1400 hours, the submarine was back at periscope depth when an aircraft was sighted and she was taken back down to 40 metres.
At 1412 hours, she was at a depth of 35 metres, when a loud explosion was felt near her starboard side. T.V. D'Amato took his submarine to 60 metres and was no more disturbed.
This was almost certainly Sunderland 'S' (L.5804) of 230 Squadron, piloted by Flight Lieutenant W.W. Campbell, attacking the submarine Anfitrite who was in the vicinity.
|28 Jun 1940||2315||37° 21'N, 19° 51'E|
|At 2315 hours, a submarine, believed to be enemy, was sighted at 200 metres, bearing 020° to port. Ondina turned to starboard in an attempt to fire a stern shot and the sterns of the two submarines missed each other by about 30 meters, Ondina dived immediately to 30 meters and attempted to detect the submarine with hydrophones, but all contact was lost at 0052 hours on the 29th. This was possibly Rubino who was lost the next day.|
|29 Jun 1940||0615|
0430 or 0630 (e)
|38° 24'N, 18° 39'E||At 0615 hours, Ondina was proceeding at a depth of 40 meters when she was shaken by a violent explosion (probably an aircraft bomb as hydrophones had not picked up a contact). The submarine went down to 65 meters and escaped damage.|
This was Sunderland 5806 'Q' of 228 Squadron attacking Sirena.
|29 Jun 1940||0640-0650||38° 24'N, 18° 39'E|
|Between 0640 and 0650 hours, Ondina was attacked by a destroyer with fifteen depth-charges. The submarine was shaken but escaped serious damage.|
|29 Jun 1940||0700-0805||38° 24'N, 18° 39'E|
|Between 0700 and 0805 hours, Ondina was attacked by a destroyer who dropped eighteen depth-charges. The submarine was shaken but escaped briefly to 86 meters but could not maintain silent running below 40 meters. She finally escaped without further damage.|
|29 Jun 1940||1445||38° 24'N, 18° 39'E|
|At 1445, Ondina was attacked by a destroyer who dropped two depth-charges. The submarine escaped damage.|
|30 Jun 1940||1400-1550||36° 37'N, 20° 50'E|
|At 1400 hours, Ondina Ondina was attacked by an aircraft which dropped two bombs. Two more bombs fell at 1550 hours. The submarine escaped damage.|
|1 Jul 1940||1037-1047||35° 13'N, 20° 44'E||At 1037, 1045 and 1047 hours, Ondina reported being bombed by an aircraft. This probably refers to the attack on Bragadino at this time.|
|1 Jul 1940||1325||36° 37'N, 20° 50'E|
|At 1325 hours, Ondina was attacked by a destroyer with five depth-charges. The submarine was shaken but escaped damage.|
|1 Jul 1940||2003||34° 45'N, 21° 42'E||At 2003 hours, two vessels were observed moving at high speed at a distance of 3,500 metre. One of them was described as similar to Principessa Maria. Ondina fired three warning shots, followed by seven rounds. |
These were the Italians Principessa Giovanna and Piemonte, on passage from Tobruk to Bari and mistaken for enemy vessels. They reported attacked at 1952 hours.
AT 2050 hours, Ondina had to break off the action because of the heavy seas. She had also developed defects, which would force her to abort patrol the next day.

On the night of 10/11th March, she was ordered to an area between 34°20'N and 34°40'N, and between 15°20'E and 15°40'E. On her return to Taranto, she was attacked by HMS P 34 and sunk.|
|6 Mar 1942||0220|
(0) About 15 miles south of Cape Colonne.
|At 0220 hours, Millo had just met a convoy (Liv, Tripolino and Sidamo escorted by the destroyer Stocco on passage from Taranto to Messina) and was, for a time, following it astern. The submarine observed a torpedo track which missed her 150 metres ahead and missed Stocco 50 metres astern. She alerted the destroyer that the enemy submarine was heard about 2 miles bearing 140°. Stocco turned back dropping four 100 kg-depth charges and six 30 kg-depth charges at 0241 hours before rejoining the convoy at 0250 hours. The "attack" was bogus, as no allied submarine operated in the area.|
|14 Mar 1942|
|At 1255 hours, the submarine HMS P 34 (later renamed HMS Ultimatum) sighted the conning tower of a submarine at 8,000 yards.|
At 1318 hours, the British submarine fired a salvo of four torpedoes at a distance of 2,200 yards. Two hit and the enemy boat sank.
This was Ammiraglio Millo returning to Taranto after a patrol southeast of Malta. HMS P 34 picked up fourteen survivors, a fifteenth was picked by an Italian small boat. Fifty-six perished, including C.C. Vincenzo d'Amato and two officers. One torpedo was recovered intact on a beach.
