News of HMS Oxley is made public

Richard Brown makes a typically perceptive observation in his diary:

I should have recorded last time that the submarine Oxley was destroyed by an internal explosion, they said. A big boat, 1,380/1,850 tons, and not much about it in the papers. We weren’t told how it happened either; perhaps we’ll know afterwards.”
