Maillé-Brezé

Post by Jordi Comas » Wed Oct 02, 2019 6:45 pm

Hi all,

How many casualties there were on board French destroyer Maillé-Brezé on 30/4/40 when one of her torpedoes exploded at Greenock and sank her?

Some sources say 27, others 28, 33 or 37, and 47 wounded.

Thank you very much
Jordi

Hello,

Following the book "La Campagne de Norège" edited by the Service Historique de la Marine, the report of the commission of inquiry of the French Navy reports a balance sheet is 6 dead, 21 missing and 47 wounded.
The Maillé Brézé was under command of capitaine de frégate Glotin.

Regards
Alain
