Carlo Fecia di Cossato


Carlo Fecia di Cossato 1908 - 1944 was a naval ace in the Regia Marina (Italian Navy). He commanded submarines and ships during World War II. He was credited with the confirmed sinkings of 16 enemy ships.[1]

After the Allies' Armistice with Italy, he fought with bravery against German shipping near Bastia.

l giorno 9 settembre, giorno seguente l'armistizio, al comando della torpediniera Aliseo, un'unità della Classe Ciclone sostenne un vittorioso scontro nelle acque della Corsica contro 7 unità tedesche di armamento superiore; tra queste, cinque erano motozattere armate (F 612, F 459, F 387, F 366 e F 623), a cui si aggiungevano due cacciasommergibili, UJ 2203 (ex-francese Minerva) e UJ 2219 (ex-francese Insuma), che vennero tutti affondati dal tiro dei cannoni[2][3] e i piroscafi Humanitas e Sassari, con equipaggio italiano ma personale alle armi tedesco, resi inoffensivi. L'azione scaturì dall'attacco portato dai tedeschi ad una unità gemella della Aliseo, l'Ardito, che usciva dal porto di Bastia al seguito della Aliseo. L'unità fu gravemente danneggiata, mentre il MAS 523 veniva catturato così come il comandante del porto. Prontamente, Fecia di Cossato invertiva la rotta e l'Aliseo affrontava con i suoi 3 cannoni da 100mm il naviglio tedesco presente, affondando le sette unità sopra elencate[4]. Anche questa azione verrà citata nel conferimento della medaglia d'oro al valor militare.
