Wreck of Turbine/TA 14, Salamis

Post by LColombo » Tue Jan 21, 2020 10:08 pm

On 15 September 1944 the German torpedo boat TA 14, former Italian destroyer Turbine, was sunk in Salamis by Allied aircraft.

Does anyone know if her wreck was raised/scrapped and, if so, when and by who?

The destroyer was a total wreck after the bombing. The wreck was cut up in the spot and the pieces were taken to an area inside the Naval Base for dumping. The work was done right after the liberation of Greece (no exact date, sorry) and from what I understand it was performed by the Greek Navy.
