Attack on MT convoy December 12 1917

Recommended Posts

I am trying to find details of an attack on an East Coast convoy on the above date.  Unusually this involved at least five German torpedo boats/destroyers, V100, G101, G103, G104 and B97.  The attack took place 8 miles East of Blyth in Northumberland, presumably within the War Channel and culminated in the loss of a ship called Nike with some loss of life.  I have examined the Technical History document on the history and development of he East  coast convoys and this attack is not even mentioned (maybe it didn't happen) .Can anyone shed any light on this incident or point me in the direction of an information source.  The surface attack on the Mary Rose Convoy has received a great deal of coverage but seemingly not this one.
