Lieut. Arthur Richard Hezlett, RN (centre), the Commander of HMSM URSULA (N59), with some of his crew after reaching Gibraltar harbour. 11 December 1941
HMS Ursula sunk a 5000 ton supply ship and damaged others on that last patrol.
Hezlet was the commander from 6 Sept 1941 to 6 March 1942
During 1942 she was released from service in the Mediterranean and returned to UK for refit before being deployed in Home waters. During July she carried out a patrol in Arctic waters to provide antisubmarine protection against attacks on the ill-fated Russian convoy PQ17 and returning QP13. She returned to the Mediterranean in October 1942 and took part in interception patrols during the allied landings (Operation TORCH). In a subsequent patrol the next month she sank two supply ships and whilst attacking this convoy was rammed by one of the mercantiles under escort. The damage sustained made necessary a return to home waters and she was selected for transfer to the Soviet Navy.
Renamed V4 (B4 in Russian) she joined the Northern Fleet in 1944 and was returned to the RN with two other submarines of this Class in 1949. Placed on the Disposal List she was sold for breaking-up in December that year and arrived at Granton in May 1950
