Correction from Page 5 above, lines 4 & 5:

12/6/1941, Photo, R.A.F. Bombers Visit Italian Munitions Factory S. of TarantoMap, Taranto Italy, Google

British Torpedo Planes Raid Italian Battle Fleet at Taranto Harbor; Blazing Fires & Explosions, 11/15/1940

Note: The map link in the original Page 5 posting was incorrect. … Edits are not allowed after 24 hours from posting. (I would have much preferred correcting the originally wrong link.) Sorry about that.

You really should put all this in a stand alone website, or we could host it at Hyperwar. Great links for research.

Thanks Opana. My only posts are on the Axis History Forum. HyperWar is a first-class site. You're welcome to collate any links (and titles) to HyperWar. I could help in the proof reading.
