Hello Lorenzo and Jordi,
The attack on DESMOULEA was carried out solely by LIBRA and LUPO. At that time LINCE was escorting out CALINO which was returning to Italy. They had sailed from Alimnia at 1115/30 but were recalled when air recce had observed an enemy squadron in the Aegean. CALINO and LINCE sailed again the following day when the danger appeared to have passed.
For the attack on 02.10.40, I suspect that the date is probably an error. AFAIK nothing on this in the LINCE file but many documents are missing. Without a precise date, searching will be time consuming.
