Platon Alexiades Posted April 10, 2015 Report Share Posted April 10, 2015 During the Second World war, the first attack by an Italian submarine was made by Smeraldo (T.V. Carlo Todaro) at 0100/11 June 1940. The attack occurred at about 60 miles west of Alexandria, the target about 7-8,000 tons (one of two ships). Was it ever identified? The attack was unobserved but anyone has a clue of a merchant ship in this area at that time? Apparently she must have left Alexandria a few hours before. British documents for this period are very sketchy. Many thanks. Platon Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
