Battle of Calabria - the destroyer Leone Pancaldo, sent to Augusta in Sicily, which was hit by a torpedo launched from a Swordfish at 09:40 the next day (?10 July 1940?). (from Wikipedia)

If Wikipedia said that, Wikipedia is wrong as usual.
Leone Pancaldo was not the first Italian destroyer sunk (21:15 of 10 July - eventually raised, reparaired and returned to service): Espero and Zeffiro had already been sunk (28 June and 5 July respectively).

Moreover, TEN Italian submarines (warships, by sure) had already been sunk by that date.

Besides, I really can't understand why you could possibly have identified the ship in the picture as a destroyer 8O

Navigatori class:

Hint #3: lost off Tobruk.

Hint #4: we have recently talked about this ship in a quiz in another thread (War in the Mediterranean) during March 2006.

No, sorry. Colleoni lost in the Aegean on 19 July.

Again, I am truly amazed 8O Do you really think the two images below portrait the same ship?

Is this the one you mean Davide?

Thank you Davide,

An easy one. Who coined the term "Axis", when and where did this take place and what did it refer to. Seems like a lot of questions, but the answer to one should give you the rest anyway :wink:

Maybe not as easy as I thought.

Hint: Think of who was in charge of Italy during the time Italy was under Fascism :wink:
