Aden Force

Post by Jordi Comas » Fri Dec 13, 2019 2:38 pm

Hi all,

Do you know what ships formed the Aden Force on 10 June 1940 at the entry of Italy in the war? I have the following ones

4 Light Cruisers: Carlisle, Ceres, Hobart, Leander
4 Destroyers: Khartoum, Kandahar, Kingston, Kimberley
5 Sloops: Falmouth, Grimsby, Shoreham, Flamingo, Auckland
5 Minesweepers: Derby, Huntley and 3 more. Do you know which ones? Perhaps Widnes is another one?

Thank you very much
Jordi

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.
