former HUNTERFIELD > DIANA or CARMEN

Post by davidships » Fri Apr 17, 2020 10:01 am

I am rather confused by the different sources mentioned in this old thread and where the right answer lies, from the point of view of the former HUNTERFIELD > MAIRI DEFTEREOU
http://warsailors.com/forum/archive/for ... #msg-36329

Options seem to be:
1) > GENOVA > DIANA: Torp. and sunk by HMS UNTIRING, 12 April 1944, 5 miles south of Oneglia (Genoa)
2) > GENOVA > CARMEN: 11 March 1944 sunk by air attack off Imperia
3) > GENOVA > CARMEN: Sunk by air attack at Toulon 12 March 1944, salved and arrived at Trieste, 21 Nov 1945, for scrapping

There seems to be much confusion with another old Greek vessel that was also taken over by the Vichy Government, then to Italy and Germany: BINGEN > MAID OF SAMOS > PAVIA > [DIANA or CARMEN], as well as which fate belongs to which (3 fates for two ships!)

Hi,

Maid of Samos became Italian Pavia in 1942 and German Carmen in 1944. Bombed and sunk at Toulon by USAAF 11/3/44.
Mairi Defterou became Italian Genova in 1942 and German Diana in 1943. Sunk by submarine Untiring 12/4/44 off Oneglia.

Thanks Jordi
I will take that as definitive regarding also the details of DIANA's loss (of which also many variations online)
CARMEN: 11 March 1944 sunk by air attack off Imperia
Was there another ship lost that matches this date/place?

Hi David,

No, just the one I've told you. Perhaps it's a mistake. I think in Imperia there were no ships. No USAAF air raid over Imperia in that date.
