Hello Axel

Although I cannot answer your question accurately, I may be able to point you in the right direction.

There are some excellent books regarding British Coastal Forces actions in what was known as Home Waters. Some books were written by LC Reynolds and titled "Home Waters MTB's AT WAR"  and "Dog Boats at War". I am sure that you may be able to obtain one from your local Library. The books go into some detail of various actions and giving information made available after the War had ended.

Regards

Axel,
 
The Vp 1304 was sunk in an attack by 6 MTB's (241, 224, 225, 234, 244 and 232) of the 21 MTB-Flotilla (C.O. Lt. G.J. Macdonald RNZNVR).
