Hi Jordi,

Ardito: while escorting Numidia (carrying 1,000 PoWs), she was attacked at 1445/23 November 1942, in position 045 - Cape Africa - 10 miles by enemy bombers, two killed and eight wounded.

Francesco Crispi: attacked by six bombers at 1220/27 November 1942 while anchored at Leros. Damaged. Sorry, no info on casualties [check with Lorenzo Colombo, he may have more info].

Climene: machine-gunned by a single aircraft at 0357/28 November (no attack on 27 November, so I assume that you refer to this one), in position 3749' N, 1210' E. Two were wounded but both died a few hours later.

Aretusa: attacked by aircraft at 1440/5 December 1942, in 3511' N, 1133' E (near Kerkennah Buoy no.1). Three killed and fifteen wounded.

Best regards,

Platon
