Re: Convoy AT.36

Thank you Phil,

I was looking for convoy AT.36 from Alexandria (30/3/41) to Tobruk (2/4/41). Not TA.36.
M is for Mediterranean.

If you look at convoy escort movements of HMS Eridge and HMS Beaufort in naval-history.net you'll find that they were involved in this convoy.

Re: M/T Sagona

Hi, Brian,

Yes, the underwater teams entered in Alexandria at the same time when the destroyers arrived and possibly came alongside the tanker to fuel.

Re: Spanish tug RIO TURIA

Hi David,

No, sorry. Just that it was taken by the Republicans at the beginning of the war, so it would be on September 1936.

Re: Operation Style 1942

Thank you Brian one more time!

Just, ADM is an official source?

The following books: Eagle's war and Malta convoys tell that it was Wrestler not Partridge, but history.net says Partridge.

Re: Operation Mincemeat

Hi one more time,

During operation Mincemeat Force H was divided when Ark Royal launched her airplanes against Tempio. BB Nelson and its group was 75 miles North of Ark Royal group. So, the destroyers also were divided. 1 for Ark Royal and Hermione, 4 for Nelson.
