20 Jul 1918 - A fitting in the engine room failed just after UB 124 torpedoed the already damaged liner Justica. The U-boat sank to the bottom in 90 meters of water. Seven hours later, Wutsdorff attempted to resurface, but the boat assumed a steep stern-down angle, with water in the bilge flowing aft where it shorted out the electric motors. The British destroyers Milbrook, Marne, and Pigeon had remained in the area and opened fire on UB 124, which was unable to dive with her electric motors inoperative. Wutsdorff then ordered UB 124 to be scuttled. 2 dead, unknown number of survivors.
