VESTA was in company with CERERE (which took her in tow) escorted by two Italian auxiliaries MORRHUA (any info on this vessel?) and ORSINI. She was torpedoed on 4 July.
I believe that VESTA was later used to block the Corinth Canal in October 1944. Later raised by the Greeks and renamed MEMPHIS and sunk by mine (in 1948!). Any additional is welcome. Jordi, I think I will have to send you a copy of my book :).
