Re: HMS Umpire

Happy new year! :D

Re: Aden Force

According to naval-history.net Ceres left Colombo with unknown destination on June 9th, which means that she could not be in Aden on June 10th.
Only in August she joined that Force for evacuation operations in Somalia.

Re: TANKER ARSIA

According to uboat.net the Arsia that was damaged (total loss) by HMS Unique was a cargo ship, not a tanker: https://uboat.net/allies/warships/ship/3534.html (see 03.06.1941) Wiki says that Papanikolis on her patrol from 31.
