Attack by 5.lei.Div. led to capture of English forward positions at Maaten Bescer, as well as partial capture of built-up positions near Marsa Brega. Combat-capable elements of A.A.3 took B. es Suera. Counterattacks by enemy tanks were repulsed.
The reinforced 12th Bersaglieri battalion of Div. Ariete moved into position on the heights just north and 10 km north of Maaten Giofer.
Italian air force attacked reserves around Agedabia, the German tank and motor vehicle concentrations at Bleidet, as well as the positions at Marsa Brega.

[Siege of Tobruk]
5th Light Division attacked British 2nd Armoured Division at Mersa Brega, Libya starting at 0745 hours, supported by dive bombers. After holding off the offensive for most of the day, German tanks broke through at 1730 hours, capturing the town by 1900 hours. As the sun slowly set, British commanders decided not to counterattack with their tanks, but instead withdraw 30 miles northeast toward Agedabia. The day’s engagement cost the British 60 men killed, 8 armoured carriers destroyed, and 1 anti-aircraft gun destroyed.
ROMMEL’S FIRST ATTACK (March – April 1941)
Most of his force disembarked at Tripoli by 11th March and Rommel struck at the British on 31st March.
Ge. O’Connor had returned to Cairo, for a rest, handing 13 Corps over to Ge. Philip Neame, VC. The British advance had halted at Mersa El Brega gap, between the desert and the coast, just east of El Aghelia and it was here that Rommel struck on 31st March, with the Italians supported by 120 MK III and MK IV tanks. With 7th Armoured refitting in the Nile delta, the forward positions were held by scattered elements of the 2nd Armoured. The Panzer III and IV’s cut through the British armour like a knife through butter, assisted by the Luftwaffe.
With one of its two Armoured Brigades in Greece, the 2nd Armoured Division fell back on Antelat, having been forced out of Mersa El Brega, with Rommel’s forces on their heels and by 3rd April the British were in full retreat.

Aircraft again established contact with the convoy confirmed on 29 and 30.3.  Convoy position at 0930, AL 6582. The aircraft was forbidden to attack and was to attempt to shadow unobserved. This it was unable to do, however, it was sighted by a convoy unit, which reported the convoy position in AL 6887. The difference in fix amounted to about 70 sea miles.  It was thought that the convoy units report might very well be a reference point, a frequent surmise. However, as a second aircraft reported the convoy in AL 9136 at 1230, and the convoy unit reported the second aircraft in AL 9211, this last position can be taken as certain. The first aircraft's fix then was 70 sea miles out. U 73, U 97 and U 101 were detailed for action. These boats were in a favourable position about 100 to 120 sea miles ahead of the convoy. The aircraft sent bearing signals which should have been picked up by the U-boats and reported with their positions to act as check on the convoy position. No messages have been received. There was no contact with the enemy. In the evening the boats received orders to occupy their operational areas. U 94 and U 101 received grid AK 02 as position, U 76 the grid AL 15.
U 98, from which no message was received for several days in spite of repeated requests, sent a position report.
U 106 reported having carried out replenishment of supplies.
In the light of experience, especially in the case of the last convoy reported by aircraft which was unable to remain unobserved, and the resulting strengthening of Fliegerführer Atlantic’s conviction that an unobserved shadowing is impossible with the type FW 200, I have decided to give the aircraft in general freedom to attack. I hope in this way to cause the enemy to report on the air attack – from which the position may be obtained by the Radio Intercept Service.
This had in fact happened twice today, and once previously.

At 2:37 on March 31, 1941, Ambra sighted a large escorted ship moving at an estimated speed of 10 knots. At 2:44 she launched three torpedoes at the target and remained on the surface to observe the results. Two torpedoes hit the ship in the middle, and Arillo, in the dark, assumed he had torpedoed a large tanker. The ship hit was actually light cruiser HMS Bonaventure escorting convoy GA8 from Greece to Alexandria along with destroyers HMAS Stuart, HMS Griffin and HMS Hereward. Hit in both of her engine rooms Bonaventure
quickly sank within five or six minutes in the position 33°20’N 26°35’E with 139 casualties and 310 survivors. After observing the success of her attack, Ambra moved away.
While Hereward was rescuing the survivors, Stuart, who was missed by the third torpedo, detected Ambra
with ASDIC and commenced a series of depth charge attacks against the submarine. Hereward soon joined in, and attacks lasted for several hours until approximately 6:30. The submarine suffered damage to a variety of her equipment, including both gyroscopic and magnetic compasses. Once the escorts moved away, Ambra surfaced and using Celestial Navigation made her way back to Augusta. Captain Arillo received the Silver Medal of Military Valor for his performance during this patrol.
HMS Upright (Lt. E.D. Norman, DSC) torpedoed and damaged the German merchant Galilea (1927 GRT, built 1922) about 60 nautical miles North-West of Tripoli, Libya in position 33°38’N, 12°40’E.
HMS Rorqual (Cdr R.H. Dewhurst, DSO) torpedoed and sank the Italian submarine Pier Capponi (770 tons, built 1929) south of Stromboli in position 38°32’N, 15°19’E. The submarine had sailed from Messina for La Spezia.
HMS Tetrarch departed Alexandria for her 12th war patrol (7th in the Mediterranean). She was ordered to patrol in the Gulf of Sirte and off Tripoli.
