HMS P-311 left home waters to join the 10th Submarine Flotilla at Malta in November 1942. On the 28th December the submarine left Malta to take part in Operation Principle - the attack, by chariots on Maddalena Harbour, Sardinia. P-311 failed to make the rendezvous; her chariots were never launched and took no part in the attack. Wireless messages were received on 30th December but no further news was heard. The submarine should have returned to Malta on 8th January 1943. It is assumed that the submarine struck a mine and sank.
P311 was the only unnamed T-class boat, she was due to have been named Tutenkhamen but lost before she could be renamed. She was fitted to carry 2 Chariot human torpedoes.
