Loss of ALFIERI 30/7/1943

Post by Urs Heßling » Wed Jul 10, 2019 7:47 am

hi,

a follow-on question to Jordi's ALFIERI-thread from 3/3/2019 (now in the read-only-section)

Which unit (FAA, RAF ?) belonged the torpedo bombers to (in both attacks) ?

Thank you, Urs

Hello Urs,

The 30 July attack was made up by eight Beaufighters of 39 Squadron (RAF), four carrying torpedoes and four acting as anti-flak (the Italians mentioned seven aircraft). The attack on the previous day was also made by Beaufighters but apparently from another squadron.

Best regards,

Platon
