German and English destroyer - a real story

In 1943, a German and British destroyer met in the North Atlantic. The British, without hesitation, were the first to hurl a torpedo at the enemy, but the rudders of the torpedo jammed at an angle, and as a result, the torpedo made a circular fun maneuver and returned ... The British were no longer joking when they watched their torpedo rushing towards them.

As a result, they got it from their own torpedo, and in such a way that the destroyer, although it remained afloat and waited for help, did not participate in hostilities until the very end of the war due to the damage received. It is curious that the Germans did not begin to finish off their opponents. Eyewitnesses from the British destroyer claimed that the Germans were rolling on the deck of their destroyer and laughing so hard that they could no longer shoot.
