You're quite right, Urs: I only find SPEZIA in North African convoys on 27 to 29 July 1941 (Naples to Tripoli), on 1 to 3 August (Tripoli to Benghazi), on 11 to 14 August (Benghazi to Brindisi), on 7 to 11 September (Naples to Benghazi), on 16 to 18 September (start of a shuttle service from Benghazi to Tripoli and back), on 7 to 9 October (Tripoli to Benghazi), on 13 to 16 October (Benghazi to Tripoli again), on 23 to 25 October (Tripoli to Benghazi), on 9 to 11 November (again Tripoli to Benghazi), on 18 to 21 November (back to Tripoli), on 26 to 29 Nov. (back to Benghazi), on 1 to 4 Dec. (back to Tripoli), on 7 to 10 Dec. (to Benghazi again), on 15 to 17 Dec. (to Tripoli) and finally on 20 to 22 Dec. (from Tripoli for Benghazi, sunk en route).
I think the first half of the year was spent by SPEZIA carrying Spanish fruit to Southern France.
P.S. Please excuse my using Italian in my previous post, I was led off course by Brexit ..
