Bari Air Raid 2nd December 1943

Postby Peter » Wed Dec 02, 2020 1:01 pm

Greetings All :This is the day 2nd December we give thanks to those and Remember the Bari (Italy) air raid when so much was achieved by the enemy in so little time , and the suffering and after effects of our Forces. Thankfully I survived, and the "pain" of that night is still sore.
Coastal Forces paid a significant role in the rescue and first aid of those survivors in the water with our Base Ship HMS Vienna the Hospital for those needing medical attention . The pictures attached give some idea of that fatal night
