Does anyone have details of a ship called Pompeji 2,916t? I can't find it on the Homefleet list so it may be a German ship.
On 14 September 1944 Pompeji was part of a four ship convoy, which included Iris 3,323t, that was attacked by Mosquitoes from 235 and 248 Sqn's from Banff.
Apart from details of the Pompeji, would anyone know what the other two ships of the convoy were? There were also two escorts, one of which was the VP1608 Sulldorf which was sunk.
