Title

Battle of the Espero convoy. Part 8

Description

In a turbulent sea, a raft is capsizing, throwing all of the men into the sea. Some of the men are already in the water with hands raised in the air. Some are wearing life jackets.

Label reads “14”; signed by the author; caption reads “(8) … così comincio l’odissea di questa zattera sperduta sul mare, altri naufraghi si trovarono, quella notte e all’alba, si potettero contare; erano 36 aggrappati alla zattera o sedutivi sopra. Un ufficiale, che era tra questi, ordinò che i sani a turno, stessero in acqua, finchè reggevano loro le forze, per far posto sulla zattera ai feriti, e agli ammalati, che non erano pochi, e trè volte nei cambi il legno sì rovesciò, e taluni trà i feriti annegarono…”
