Hi guys,
I have a couple of disagreements with the above, maybe there is more to this story:
On 10/6/40 the Italian freighters Sumatra, 4859, XXVIII Ottobre, 4888 and Volpi, 5292, took refuge in Phuket harbor. On 8/12/41 the trio was scuttled (why? Thailand was under Japanese influence already)
Salvage was apparently not attempted on the first two, only on Volpi.
Now: according to my data, the Sumatra maru attacked by the charioteers was the former Dutch Tomori, 984 tgr, and the attack on Volpi was unsuccesful.
Any additional info welcome,
regards, Brian
