The enemy had superiority in numbers, his tanks were more heavily armoured, they had larger calibre guns with nearly twice the effective range of ours, and their telescopes were superior. 5 RTR 19/11/41

The nearest vessel looks like the Torpoint Ferry which connects England to Cornwall, but the weather looks much too good... :lol:

I'm guessing German vessels somewhere in Greece?

Regards

A guess: Italian torpedo boats, which are loaded with torpedoes and depth charges, somewhere in an Italian dock.

hi, Weisweiler,

no, Sir.

the "early" boat you mentioned never made it to the Med ... and in late Spring of '44 Anzio was history, already ...

Hi PB,

Ehm... the battle of Anzio ends with the capture of Rome in June 1944.

But my guess wasn't what you have in mind anyway, so I'll have to come up whith something better.

Is it a preparation for a mission?
