Re: TANKER ARSIA

Perfect! Impresive! I have just the "La difesa del traffico con l'Albania, la Grecia e l'Egeo" which I consider reliable to a great extent though incomplete... I just put the order for the Corinth Canal at last. I have been skirting around that book since I was studying the torpedoing of HELLEE. I h...

Re: TANKER ARSIA

If there is a mistake of one day forward in the italian book, these ships could also be the aux.cruiser ZARA and the auxiliary KRETA (ex Ile de Beauté) from Patra to Dardanells. Rallis identified the escort as a destoyer, though the small AOB could be misleading. The Pontinia is an excellent candida...

The facts are that the MERKUR/HORST where identical of 212brt while PAUL 200brt. The HORST/PAUL where sunk by torpedo boats on 8 October 1944 ...

Re: TANKER ARSIA

As I see this place is an endless source of information, so I grab the chance to ask if there is a way to establish the identity of a merchant ship which submarine NIREFS met in the KAFIREAS straight on 20th July 1942 (not on 19th when it met the hospital ship SICILIA). The submarine didn't attack b...

Re: TANKER ARSIA

Gentlemen, thank you very much for you replies. These days I try to reconstruct all the occasions that the greek submarines met their opponents during ww2. I have already found photos of ARSIA (LE SORCOFF), GIORGIO ORSINI (F-110) and POLA (not the MV) so, if anyone is intrested I can send them. Best...

Hello! I am looking information about an attack of the greek submarine PAPANIKOLIS at Lero on 10th Septmeber 1942. According to "La difesa del traffico con l'Albania, la Grecia e l'Egeo" I found out that this could be the tanker ARSIA. However it seems that the ARSIA had been sunk by HMS UNIQUE sinc...
