Sea/Air Battle in the Med - 11-13 Sept 41

I started writing this up just to show a not untypical loading list of a merchant lost due to the anti-supply campaign by the R.A.F. This then turned quickly into a ferreting job through various sources, and in the end I think it serves well to illustrate the issues one encounters when working with primary sources, official histories, and personal recollections.

Some questions:

1) Does anyone have detailed information on No. 830 Squadron FAA's operations in those days?
2) Does anyone have a solution based on primary evidence for who attacked SS Alfredo Oriani on 11 September?

Happy reading.

All the best

Andreas
