Re: Sources on turkish merchant shipping in World War 2

Hi Darius,

Look at Lloyd's register of shipping from 1939 to 1945 on the net

Re: Force D during the Battle of Calabria

Thank you Thorsten,

I think these destroyers were escorting convoy MF1 but not Force D

HMS Huntley

Hi all,

British minesweeper Huntley was sunk by 2 German He-111 around 30 m W of Mersa Matruh 31/1/41. Any more details?
I think she possibly was escorting Egyptian transport Solloum from Mersa Matruh to Tobruk with 250 Italian POW. Is it right? Time of the attack?

Thank you very much

Re: PESCARA???

Hi George,

According to my sources the ship was scuttled by Germans not mined and was refloated and commissioned after the war. Built in 1898.
