Re: Yugoslav SPASILAC

According to Platon's book, in mid April 1943, the Instancabile was busy, together with the tug Tennax , in salvaging the oiler Marie Maersk which had been sunk in Piraeus in April 1941. It was during that period (1 April 1943) that Instancabile detected by Katsonis entering Milos bay together with ...

PESCARA???

Google books "World War II Sea War, Vol 10" we read:
21 Spetember 1943: Α mine sunk the Italian steamer PESCARA (1048GRT) at Torre del Greco, Italy.

There is no other reference of this ship in the web. Does anyone have something more about PESCARA maybe?

Thank you!
