Submarines at Aberlady Bay

abs_0020weeRuthie and I had a walk to the sands of Aberlady Bay last week. This was the view when we climbed the dune at the shore. These things in the distance?

This is one of the XT class 4-man submarines lying near the shoreline.

I’ve read they were used as training for a midget-sub raid on the Tirpitz and just left there. I also heard they were used as targets for the OTU squadrons based at East Fortune. Beaufighter Fodder! Perhaps both versions are true?
