Bryan Gouthwaite Scurfield, RN) and the Polish destroyer Blyskawica (Komandor Podporucznik Wojciech Franki, ORP) conducted a patrol in the English Channel. They detected four German destroyers.

The ship's officers were uncertain if they were off the northern coast of Ireland or the western coast of Scotland. When dawn broke it revealed a rocky coastline 3 to 4 miles 4.

Most of the ships correctly thought this was the Scottish coast and turned south, but Otranto ' s officer of the deck thought that it was the Irish coast and turned north.

Kashmir was only about a half mile 0. Both ships attempted to avoid the collision, but their efforts cancelled out and Kashmir rammed Otranto on the port side amidships, a few miles off the rocky coast of Islay.
