Title

Actions of the destroyer Vivaldi. Part 7

Description

On a clear day and in a calm sea, the destroyers Malocello and Vivaldi are manoeuvring. The vessel in the middle has been badly damaged and is engulfed in flames. Figures can be seen on deck. The vessels on the horizon have also been hit and flames have engulfed the middle and stern sections. Fires are raging. Three torpedo bombers are flying at low altitude and torpedoes are being dropped. To the left, seven bombers are approaching in formation.

Label reads “60”; signed by the author; caption reads “7 …soppraggiungono alcuni caccia e due dragamine da Pantelleria in aiuto mentre il Malocello prende a rimorchio il Vivaldi. Alle 9.36 quattro aero-siluranti inglesi appaiono sopra lo specchio di mare in cui stà sputando fuoco da tutti i buchi il caccia. Il Maolcello le gira in tondo riparandolo con la nebbia artificiale, nessuno dei siluri sganciati dagli aerosiluranti coglie il segno. Ore 9.50 sette bombardieri si presentano nel cielo e sganciano una trentina di bombe accolti dal rabbioso fuoco antiaereo di tutti i CCTT, anche stavolta il Vivaldi rimane incolume…”
