Force H in Battle of Calabria

Post by Jordi Comas » Sun Mar 01, 2020 9:26 am

Hi all,

I'm trying to find what destroyers were involved in Force H during tha battle of Calabria 9 July 1940.
Force H had the rol to attack Italian airfields in Sardinia

I'm sure there were the following ones: Faulknor, Forester Foxhound, Fearless, Douglas, Vortigern, Escort, Active, Velox, Wrestler.

Some sources also mention Foresight and Keppel...........is this right?

Thank you very much
Jordi

according to http://www.naval-history.net/xDKWW2-4007-20JUL01.htm, those two departed from Gibraltar - after the action off Calabria - to escort the tow with the torpedoed destroyer ESCORT back to Gibraltar (but ESCORT sank)
